Tooth And Nail

There’s doubt here that lingers
It covers me in a veil
I’m still wrapped around his fingers
By tooth and nail

Look at all the sinners
This is hell
They speak of many winners
It’s just a tale

My wings come with stingers
His walls are jail
Lust our only dinners
Love gone stale

Our bones showing rigors
Death for sale
Every chime he hears triggers
I’m on his trail

hanging onto love with all that I have and am, by tooth and nail…
It’s too earlyzzzzz. I don’t want to be up but I couldn’t sleep so I wrote this instead.
