Belladonna

As I draw upon my last breath. 
I kiss her lips and wait.

I watch the carnival of lost souls.
Watch them all in their caravan.

On my weak body, I lay her hand.
How we laughed and played thru 
the meadows of our heaven.

Though I have faith in the night.
My tear filled skin is soaked to the bone.

Love should not be, if it feels like this.
I should let the devil dance upon my grave.

"If it is true I never see you in the light of day again.
I shall be lost to the darkness forever more.

Belladonna, my love,  do not leave me now.
I cannot bare to lose you this day.

There would be no life in this body.
If I did not have your love and kindness
bestowed upon me .

Belladonna is Latin for “beautiful lady”.

    I love this poem, Debbie! It almost reads like a vampire story. It has those gothic elements, yet there is a deep sadness within this poem. Excellent work!...By the way, I smiled at your note, "listening to gothic music". That sounds like me, too!...Thank you for the great comments. Sorry, I missed your birthday! :)

    This reminds me of my wife's passing. Everything I know of love I learned from her. The final lesson was that I should share what I Learned from her with the world and carry on.

    Hey--thanks for visiting. You are always an inspiration. Also, art museums are a lot like collections of poetry. We get to see just a little bit of how others perceive the world. Almost like getting into the brain of the artist as much as we can possibly do.

    This is excellent and an eloquent mix between subtle passion and musical inspiration. Favorite line "I watch the carnival of lost souls. Watch them all in their caravan". Captivating write :)

    Debby, love does make life so much more. I was not built to be a go-it-alone soul so I know what inspires you. Thanks for all your comments and know you bring a dividend of pleasantness into my life. Thanks
