#12 Ghazel of the Undead

Written as part of NaPoWriMo 2013

I bet you didn’t see this coming, did you?
Never thought I might come back, did you?

Lured me; caught me, unprepared.
When I trusted and I cared. Did you?

Red pearls round my neck will never do.
Guess you didn’t think this through, did you?

Tucked me neatly in the ground,
Didn’t think I’d come around, did you?

Never imagined we’d be meeting
When my heart’s no longer beating, did you?

Never felt my hand this cold
Since you swore I shan’t grow old, did you?

Bet you never thought that this would work, did you?
Bet you didn’t see forever coming, did you?
