Moonlighting Murderer

Portrait - Ali Sohani - Neo Noir

Moonlighting Murderer

Escapades of a dreamer,
and dreams of a nocturnal lover
tilt me
to put me off the edge..
For you..
I am moonlighting as a murderer!

Trades of a merchant,
and precision of a jeweler
deceive me
to put me off the edge…
For you..
I am moonlighting as a murderer!

Serenades of a drifter,
and spells of a sorcerer
enlighten me
to put me off the edge..
For you..
I am moonlighting as a murderer!

Masquerades of the spy,
and enigma of a keeper
expose me
to put me off the edge…
For you..
I am moonlighting as a murderer!

Crusades of the monk,
and acts of a sunlight preacher
crucify me
to put me off the edge..
For you..
I am moonlighting as a murderer!
