She Loves Me to Death

Kate offers me a love divine;
Her life-long guarantee –
With kisses, she’ll smother me.

Says I’m her ray of sunshine,
Our love was meant to be –
So, with kindness, she’ll kill me.

My partner, my concubine,
Though the truth is plain to see –
With affection, she’ll drown me.

But now I’ve a younger valentine,
And to my lover I want to flee –
But to the end, Kate says she’ll be with me.

So her favors I now decline,
I need to move on, to be free –
With her love, Kate will be the death of me.

She won’t willingly resign,
So the love-crazed reality –
She’ll kill, before she loses me.
