Your Last Breath (Poem)

The sky so black
Your blood so red
A tear falls from my eyes
As I watch it spread

For from your wounds
Like a river it flows
And I watch your eyes close
As your breathing slows

Then as your last breath
Escapes from your lips
Letting out a soft sigh
I give you one last kiss

    nice to meet you and read your poetry
    I love the contrasts you make black and red, wounds and flows and the breath lips sigh kiss makes the mind spin in the image of death's last kiss
