Do No Harm

I succumb to tears
At your lonely eyes
As they slowly close
The doors to life

Your flesh is warm
But my heart is cold
As the glimmering blade
Of the knife I hold

I fear for you
I’m fearing you
And the malignance of
The things you do

Forgive me friend
But I’ve chosen now
To end the darkness
In you, somehow

With trembling hands
I take this task
Because a better world
Is all I ask

And from my mirror
You look back at me
And witness how
We’ll soon be free

With the rushing blood
That’s strangely warm
And the promise that I
Shall do no more harm

I succumb to tears
And these lonely eyes
Shall slowly close
The doors to life
