Home, To The Gates Of Hell - Poem by Katty Livingston

Black and blue,
I still followed you.
At your heels,
Your Sally Ragdoll.
Bruised arms sing,
Of all the grief you bring.
And I gave you everything-
Walking blind,
Lost in the dark.

When blows rain down like snow,
Till I'm numb at ten below.
Winter lasts for years,
When you keep me trapped in here.
The flowers stand, frozen.
But I'll keep my eyes open, and
Walk you home-
To the gates of Hell,
To the gates of Hell.

Boy, you say
That we shouldn't feel this way.
But you refuse to change,
Got your heart set in stone.
Chilled to the bone,
I wait up alone.
Until you stumble home,
With drink on your breath.

When blows rain down like snow,
Till I'm numb at ten below.
Winter lasts for years,
When you keep me trapped in here.
The flowers stand, frozen.
But I'll keep my eyes open, and
Walk you home-
To the gates of Hell,
To the gates of Hell.

Black and blue,
I still followed you.
At your heels,
Your Sally Ragdoll.

When blows rain down like snow,
Till I'm numb at ten below.
Winter lasts for years,
When you keep me trapped in here.
The flowers stand, frozen.
But I'll keep my eyes open, and
Walk you home-
To the gates of Hell,
To the gates of Hell.

And Sally loved Jack,
But he didn't love her back.
But she brought beauty from her pain,
And had Halloween on Christmas.
