Twilight Kiss

Steal a twilight kiss upon the garden path of death....

Give to the Oleander, a twilight kiss, reach for the darkness, its false promise of bliss. Drink the nectar, that would steal the light. Listen, your heartbeat, as it fades with your sight. Then, alone, in darkness, draw your last breath.
Paula Swanson 9/10/11 For the contest; Six Lines Of Poetry, Please Sponsored by Constance La France Placement: 1st *note* Twilight kiss, is another name for suicide or to commit suicide ** Oleander is an extremely poisonous plant.
