A Valentine Poem..

Rose are red.
Violets are blue.
Lies are best kept.
When words are untrue.

I buried you deep.
I thought no one knew.
But it seems the police.
Have come looking for you.

Your soul has departed.
But your body remains.
And my dark little secret.
In you is contained.

I pray they don’t find you.
Though I know that they will.
Neath the old knotted tree.
On top of the hill.

But fear not my darling.
For to you I am tethered.
And when they destroy me.
We’ll still be together.
