Kiss of Death

Written by: Kimberly LaRocca

Death lives here with us
It calls out to
those who 
come to visit
An unwanted consequence
of accidents

Death is not loud
It whispers softly
There is
no need to shout
Finality is deafening

Death does not take sides
It is neither
Good nor bad
Happy or sad

It is all around
watching
waiting 
for a single kiss
