the blood of mary (for the nursery rhymes contest)

mary had a small secret
loosely knit
could she keep it
mary had a small secret
she wanted none to know

everywhere that mary went
discontent
slow descent
everywhere that mary went
her secret brought her low

he followed her from school one day
just to play
bird of prey
he followed her from school one day
the rest is hers to show

he made the child scream and cry
want to die
asking why
he made the child scream and cry
and never let her go

for five years this continued on
for so long
she called this home
for five years this continued on
and never did it slow

untill one day he tired of her
as it were
she never stired
until one day he tired of her
because she was too old

he told her this while smiling bright
withought insight
to his guiding light
he told her this while smiling bright
and said she had to go

so mary smiled and looked at him
in love with him
dead with him
so mary smiled and looked at him
and packed her things to go

he went in for one last embrace
for old times sake
the coup de grace
he went in for one last embrace
so she slit his throat

while bathing in his blood she smiled
the still frame smile
of a small child
while bathing in his blood she smiled
the mirth began to grow

and such a joy was never seen
the bloody scene
herslef she preened
and such a joy was never seen
mary began to glow

and with this joy upon her face
her mock disgrace
this tainted place
and with this joy upon her face
into her wrist she wrote

it is better to have loved and lost
at such a cost
my soul embossed
it is better to have loved and lost
then to never be loved...

and as her blood flowed in with his
faithless bliss
selfishness
and as her blood flowed in with his
mary became a ghost

mary had a small secret
loosely knit
couldnt keep it
mary had a small secret
but how was i to know
