kiss of death

death has walked by me
her breath warm and inviting
i have felt her lips
pressed against my forehead
heard her whisper come to me
she has danced with me
when i am lonely and sad
she invites me into her world
she is about temptation
to take that one step
into peace and tranquility
she walks next to me
her thin white fingers
entwined in mine
she knows i feel her presence
we communicate
although no words are said
but i know when she comes to me
she is attempting to feel the passion
hope and dreams of the living
when she presses close to me
she tries to feel what it is
to have a heart beating within her
and for a brief moment
she feels life, a moment
closing her eyes she breathes
in the warmth of life and love
she then disappears
to return when she needs a friend
someone who understands
she will one day come
and i will accept the kiss of death
but not yet

    Sally this is beautiful writing. You make death seem like if she were a female wanting to feel the passion of the living. I just hope that this is only a writing.
    Love you so much

  • Iris, Thank you. This is my view of death….people make death seem like a faceless horror, but I don’t think of her that way…..we come into this world in beauty and I believe we go out the same way, and I
    really do believe death wants to feel the passion of love and life!! Much Love to you, Sally xoxoxoxoxo

    We all see life differently so why should we all not see death differently. I am glad to hear she went away to come another day. Hope it`s not for a long time yet. And we can only guess what it would be like as nobody has ever come back to tell us what it is really like.

  • Thank you. This is the way I picture death…waiting to take our last breath so she can feel life….she
    may even walk past us and take one second of our breath to know what love feels like, but one day
    we all must submit to her wishes and move on to another place. xo
