Death wore her face

Photo by kind permission of Claudia Lucia McKinney
... That cold and biting night
He cried rivers
And regretted oceans
After all these years

Death wore her face
And came to torture him
with visions of happiness
between an eternity
and his last breath
her warm blood
filling his old veins

Death wore her face
and vexed him for his heart of stone
crushing it into 30 pieces of silver
his lips whispered her name
and one heartbeat exploded
through that frozen chest

Death wore her face
and time lost its pace
across the fields of  love
memories flew over his gray head
like a runaway bird hit under the wing

Death wore her face
And claimed him
with her kiss...
