My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Music Prompt #34 “Love Me Like You Do” by Ellie Goulding. It’s not my taste in music, but I was happy to take some of the lyrics and twist them into something more death metal!
Is a painful cure
Dark satellite of a world that’s dead
A putrefied corpse
Ashes of a burnt-out heart
Salome’s platter with a severed head
