Skin & Blood - Poem by AnaDiamond AA

Runaway kids,
Late-night meals,
Speeding through the red lights, kid
£0.69 lipstick on your cheek
Nowhere to go, nothing to do
I guess I was just really into you
Now I know we were only born to love and die,
Drown ourselves in the smell of blonde hair dye
Oh, my my my

We danced with the rain, hoping to be stroked by lightning
Dying on your side seemed like an immortal way to die
You were Marlon Brando like; dangerous but shy
Your lips were red as roses but no rose can ever replace your kind of a guy
Oh why, why, why
Now you are part of that navy sky

'Diamond Doll, is this what you left me for? ' he asked me on the phone
'He disgusts me to the bone; I will fight for you and this time I am not alone'
Took you away, tore us apart
But you will always have a place in my heart

I'll be your Catherine, you be my Jim
The paper be your skin, the ink be my blood
Your body reckless like a flood
Every day I will write you a letter,
'Tomorrow will be so much better'
Keep your heart up and you will feel my love

You were easy to get but, bloody hell, so hard to forget
Pride hungry boy; yourself you'd destroy
Patrol, for you, life was a game and death was the joy
And now I am left like the Helen of Troy

This chapter of my life;
I read, read, read
Over and over again
To remind myself that you were the cure
For this hell of a life that I must endure -
Without you.
