False heart of mine

Why do you seek

Forbidden ways and death?

Would you betray

Your mistress to

The ways that lead to death?

False mind of mine

Who lets thoughts in

To terrify with death

Why do you open

Up the gate

To lies, deceit and death?

False eyes of mine

That gaze upon

Those travelling down to death?

And envy each

The very stone

That drags them to their death.

False ears of mine

Why do you heed

The subtle calls of death?

And bend to hear

The empty laugh

That turns to “hush” with death

False tears of mine

Who do you fall

When all I lose is death?

There’s no regret

When life is given

And I am saved from death.
