A kiss at death's door: A POEM

A kiss at death's door: A POEM

Silently...

My mind is infected with your charm

You have stopped the veins of my heart

With unspoken words

Like a worthless garbage

You've ignored me

Like a snail

You've crawled away from my reach

My heart bleeds, unstoppable

Like a heavy downpour


I dream to awake by your side

My thoughts ran after your shadow

Dragging you in my slumber

With knees bent in pleas

Oh, Eve's daughter

In pain you have drowned me

My mind a thief

Afraid at your every glance

For you have shut the door of your heart

My feelings, I poured to you

But, foul spit you rubbed all over it

My eyes awake each night

Shedding oceans

My affection wasted


My soul is at death's door

Waiting for his kiss

For what essence is life without you?

I'd be gone in eternal rest

Than watch you love another

For you are my elixir

The very flavor of my life...

Enjoyed. Always the hardest when one loves and another doesn't.
