Theme: Future

Tarot Cards

It was a day made for love!
And we saw the tarot card reader sign.
And we entwined went to the tarot card reader
'Will we be always together?' we asked

She was wearing
the most bizarre clothes and her eyes
Pierced our souls!
She shuffled the cards said : Pray hard,
The cards see the future,
We irreverent laughed.

And I bit his neck in front of her and said,
I can suck his blood, I am from Transylvania and
he indulgently kissed me hard on my mouth,
And said I don't care about the cards
but we are together.

She again shuffled the cards and looked at me,

I saw compassion in her eyes.
She said since you don't believe forget it,
We wanted to tip her,
It was a glorious day and in our hearts we were already married.

Did she know then? That he would leave me.

Because he could not cope,
With my moodiness and temper tantrums.

Schizophrenia was the term they used for me
But I didn't believe them
Why should I...

I was pretty and young

Now,
Alone in my room
Where the nurses wear white

The tarot woman is there
Wearing her bizarre clothes but her face is his
who broke his engagement to me
And got married the same day without telling me.
