My Boy

My boy lives in my pond

The pond behind my house

He whispers

Whispers

Whispers

Sweet things to me

My boy

My boy

My sweet dear boy

Lives in my pond

And tells me great tales

Of his world beneath

He is ghastly pale

With dead hollow eyes

Flesh decaying but

I love him just fine

My boy

My boy

My sweet dear boy

Lives in my pond

Behind my house

Come he says

Come join me and see

The wonders around

The wonders around me

Don’t stray

Don’t stray!

From the dark waters

Come,

Come stay with me.

Tempted.

Take me away.

His rotten flesh scare the strongest men

But my heart,

My heart!

I love my boy who lives in my pond.

Dark water

Cool water

Take me away!

Come to me!

Take me!

Take me away

Now.

My sweet darling

“Sweet water

Bitter water

My water

Come see my wonder around”

I take his bony hand

Sweet boy

Dear boy

TAKE ME UNDERNEATH!

Under the water

In his fleshy, decaying arms

He pulls me

Pulls

Pull

Pull

Water flood my chest

Flood

Fill and kill

Take me away!

In his world

Such despair

As life drains from my brain

Let the end begin!

Let it begin

A gift for Hades

The end with my boy

My boy

My sweet boy

My boy who lives in my pond
