The blade glimmers in moonlight
Methodic waltz in the dark of a room
Composing a love letter
You, the body of writing.
Each line, underlined
Bold, flavored salty from showers of tears
Each sentence punctuated by a kiss
Vibrant scarlet lipstick
For the first time, emotion written on your face
For the first time, heart pinned to your sleeve
You were never more beautiful
Your last breath stolen from your lips
To be replaced by my own.
