Does this put a new twist on the phrase "left hanging"?

Gallows I knew, my love, I'd come to this. My eyes were never shut. Embraced by choice Your deadly kiss, And harboured not a doubt. Eagerly I greeted Hooded gallows Quick decent, Never faltered On those steps I climbed, Once full heart Was justly spent. By my willing hands That rope then... show more Gallows

I knew, my love,
I'd come to this.
My eyes were never shut.
Embraced by choice
Your deadly kiss,
And harboured not a doubt.
Eagerly I greeted
Hooded gallows
Quick decent,
Never faltered
On those steps I climbed,
Once full heart
Was justly spent.
By my willing hands
That rope then slipped
Around my head.
Regreting never once
What might have saved
My life instead.
I traded all for
Those few moments,
When I placed
My hand in yours.
Love still called
Your name when I
Slipped through
Those gallows doors.
