Dying Breath

I drip with a relentless poison

that seeps into his skin

the closer he moves toward me

the closer I move within

plucking at his heartstrings

pulling each and every thread

and still he keeps on loving

'til his very dying breath

I apologise, my darling

for what I do without cause

past the wishing and the wanting

there must soon come a pause

so that I can try to heal you

from the venom that I spread

with passion and with fury

'til your dying breath.
