Death is a Lady

Death is a Lady

Paralyzed with a shivering love affliction;
I walk with Death in a fiery all-consuming addiction;
She takes my breath with white smoky chill;
And fills my chest with a burning gasp so still;
One hand reaches for a loving grasp;
The other claws at my throat with a gasp!
The blood thunders behind my eyes;
And cold urine trickles down my thighs;
Her visage is so lovely it freeze the brain;
With a crushing fear and desire so plain!
A mere mortal like me,
Will never be free,
Of my Lady’s glacial burning embrace!
I can never take,
Any semblance of break,
From my Lady’s caressing and cutting place!
Death is a Lady of singular beauty and charm;
Eyes of frozen seas and the summer farm;
Plush lips like a bed you never will leave;
Charms and beauty eternally to weave.
Death is a Lady that ensnares every man,
Then says there is no love to wax and wan;
An angel, a devil, a lover who thrills,
That beautiful woman who casually kills.
I willingly caress this unmatched face;
Then find I have to share her embrace!
This is the maiden every man sought;
The many armed beauty that snares all thought.
I worship my lover, lady Death alright!
I stand by her every day and all night!
Shower her with love, flower and gold;
Choke in her presence and shivering kiss of cold.
She gives me sweet oblivion and unending black time,
With an eternal dream of our sweet rhyme….

I wrote this on the cuff the other night for a dear friend, then when I re-read it I thought it was good enough for my RB site….
