If I Could Have The Perfect Death

If I could have the perfect death… I would take the life of someone I Loved.
It’s a quiet winter night. Thick, heavy snowflakes are falling. I step outside in my white dress, pretty and uncharacteristic of myself. I bring with me whomever is the one I love, and together we silently walk down the path through the snow, shivering, leaving the cabin and the music and the people all behind. His hand is warm over mine.
As we head towards the pined woods, bare footed and shivering still, I can feel his excitement and confusion seeping into me. The blue, pale air is turning his lips purple, and turning towards his icy breath i kiss him once. Letting go of his hand I pull out my silver, admiring him as he admires the blade.
I press it to his neck, the cool silver like ice against his skin. I slide it down to his shoulder, pushing the tip to his skin ever so gently. He kisses me, trusting, Knowing that I love him, and i gaze at him, my hair being blown by the wind. I bring my blade to just under his chin and i move it in my fingers slightly, staring at it, lips parted. Our breath is visible in the night, the sound barely even audible.

Artist's Description

Ah… this came from a dream I had, and that’s about it. I never finished this piece, as you can probably tell by the fact that there is no death. However in the dream there was; I guess I just never wrote it. This dream and this writing went on to inspire a few more of my writings, and together they form some kind of mental world for me.
Anyway, this one was written years ago and the others have followed.
