I Do

I Do..
take me to the altar
I’ll surrender my soul there.
Quiet the achings that scream in songs.
Do not listen to their story.
They’ll drive you to the rapids,
to beat you against the rocks
and let you sink…..down down
to where the others are.
They will make you converse
with beings that were,
those hollow bones
looking for a life to exchange for their death.
My love, cover your ears,
to the tunes of the unliving,
listen to my words
and I will only hear your voice.
After today,
it will only be you,
me and them.
