Playing with fire, she embraces death.

Flames flicker about, dazzling his darken features.

Tugging at my existence.

Death enthralls me into his arms

His deathly kiss, sweet as my toxic heart.

He revels in my embrace

Laying us down in bed.


Such toxicity that burns my flesh

His lips travel upon my breast

Seizing my toxic heart

He whispers lover’s words

Perplex, I thrash

Yet, he sinks deeper into my flesh

Bringing us into orgasmic waves


With a painful cry, I fall back into reality.

My lungs seize in wretchedness.

And silently he slips away with daylight arising.

Stealing away my toxic heart

Leaving a stream seeping into these sheets

 Red droplets follow in his footsteps.

And he gloats, walking away

 With another life wrapped in his hands.
