The kiss of Death

He pulls me to himself,
the dark smile on his face;
My heart flutters within me,
Desperate to end the chase. 


His eyes target mine,
the indication of end;
"Oh please! Do be kind."
I beg to the fiend. 


He brings his lips to mine, 
I feel myself freeze;
a tiny brush and he's gone,
just a gust of breeze. 


Gradually, I feel the burn, 
where our two worlds did meet; 
of life winning over death,
where I felt the pain sweet. 


The music comes back, 
my heart beats again;
I feel the numbness grow,
with the fading pain. 


Suddenly, I sense my soul leaden,
falling into a darker cave;
My hands start to shiver with fear,
who had pretended to be so brave. 


Then, as the light breaks in,
I realize the utter lack of chance;
I've already been marked by death,
for life's final dance.
