My heart is hanged

I have seen the hardened rock of the sea water 
Fall like curtains, drown an eye with love begrudge 

Walked on a thin layer of the heart string 
It tore and I fell deep into breath of  heart's thorns 

My shadow carried chains locked on my ankle 
I smelt nose bleed like rose petals that fall 

My hands as liquid hold strong roots 
My skin just gave way to the winds 

Death welcomes a new day, clocks melt 
This is the planting seasons for corpses 

A casket is made from the heart 
In Royal Wootten Bassett for old soldier's walk 

They haunt the roads at night as red runs 
Memory with nostalgic wings hangs hearts 

My love is the child that haunts the old house 
Built on hills of  weakened crumbling mountain's heart
