Kiss/Kill

20111011-214904.jpg
I want to kiss you as you drive the knife in
Kiss you as you take what I’ve been
Wanting to surrender all along

I want to kiss you as you drain my last breath
Kiss you as you take what I guess
Somehow seems to already be gone

I want to kiss you as you cut the feeling
Kiss you while my head is reeling
Running out of reasons to resist

I want to kiss you as my world collapses
Kiss you ’till this nothingness has
Traded in my agony for bliss

I want to kiss you like it’s suicidal
Kiss you like your lips are vital
Medicine for me to overuse

I want to kiss you like our world is ending
Kiss you with my heart pretending
This is all that’s left for me to do

I want to kiss you as your fingers tighten
Kiss you as I lose my sight and
Slip away in waves of consciousness

I want to kiss you in my final motion
Kiss you with my last expression
Kiss you as they lay my soul to rest

  1. This is beautiful and heavy, quite touching as well. Like the poem before this one, it has my heart going out and has me wondering what provoked it. Also reminds me of a dream I once had…

  2. such torment, to love one who is killing you sort to say. I know that feeling all to well, and you expressed it beautifuly!

  3. I’m still trying to think of words to describe this one…. passion mixed with anguish can be brutal. You paint the picture so gracefully, giving a bitter-sweet effect. Great poetry…
