It lays in front of him
“In front of myself”
Filling with oils throughout it’s vains
“And my skin is white”
Flowers deep inside it’s throat
“Is that tulip I taste?”
It’s not to rot or waste
“Ah, my love did fade away though”
Chapstick all over it’s lips
That waited for a lover’s kiss
“She kissed me”
The fragrance! The soothing silk.
It made my soul flee from my body
“Fill my corpse, with what I died too”

The thoughts of me, if I were being filled with sweets to preserve me in my deathbed.
