Ace of Spades
A smoky haze, a broken heart,
A one-night stand,
The quick shuffling of cards,
I watch them turn into a blur,
She smiles at me, I'm reassured,
She says she's got a Royal Flush,
Her crooked smile turns vile and harsh.
The tip of cigarette,
Her erotic curve of lips,
I look at her and in my mind
I grab her tight and take her on,
And I can hear her screams and groans,
I can almost see the dealer
Stare at us, his hat askew..
I just got bored at the casino,
Since nothing here for me is new.
I walk out and I leave my car,
The blues, it shifts through my noir,
I think that
I should have a drink,
And yet I have too much to think
To be drunk tonight.
Nightclubs, neon, bloody light,
I thought I'd wish to just forget,
And yet, tonight, I shall relive,
Caressing poison of my rue
That turns to acid of regret.
The click-clack of high heels I hear,
And, unconscious of my tears,
I turn to face her come to me,
Her curly hair, her full red lips,
The black void of her luscious gaze,
It's my devil that I face.
A sick mixture flows through me -
Love and hate, and joy, and grief,
Next thing I know - we're locked so tight
I see my pain inside her eyes,
Her lips, they're curtly pressed to mine,
The scent of passion blows my mind,
I grab her, throw her to the ground,
She falls and never makes a sound,
I grab her throat and see her choke,
I watch her die,
I'm in her eyes,
My hands, they flow through soft black hair,
If that's a dream - I'm unaware..
I realize I watch the dealer
Shuffle through a deck of cards.
Another night at the casino,
Just another broken heart.
