The Loveliest Illusion

Picturesque as a photograph
And tranquil, at that juncture, you laid
Adorned in gentle ashen silk
You’d never looked as beautiful
As you did that day

Solemnity the eloquent essence
Subdued in unequivocal sorrow
Your last hours of sunlight
Drenched in rich ebony decor, pallid quiescent mourners
Destined never to see tomorrow

Saccharine exhalation
Lingering upon your orifice bare
Scarlet lipstick wiped sterile in the morgue
Crimson ribbon contrasts
Against inert sallow hair

Devout sanctimonious lover
Pious and loving of both Holy and man
Euphoric God
He does quake with anticipation
Your merge into his world now at hand

So acrimonious a statement to utter
Yet truth be told my dear
Your precious spiritual ruler;
Be he nothing but fictitious
A fabricated figure to contain you in fear

So it was, your final dread
As you tugged that noose vastly taut
I cannot help but to believe
“Dear church, don’t befoul my name”
Was doubtlessly your final thought

Darling, I think its time you knew.
God won’t be greeting you any time soon.

I'm sorry, but I read
"Saccharine exhalation
Lingering upon your orifice bare"
and cracked up.

The rest, though, is amazing.

Fair point, though a little more cynical than usual.
Good write though Smiley
