“The Form of a Goddess” – Poem

Such skin,

Drenched in porcelain sweat.

Porcelain in show,

And lifeless as snow.

A fever had accompanied thee,

And lifted you away from me.

I have taken away the sheet,

To see the woman I once kissed,

Before death came to grasp

The pieces from me,

The soul from me,

The heart from me.

Such arms, and breasts,

Such cheeks, and lips.

One drop of my tears, should be there to welcome you

Back to a place I lifted you.

Deep in arms,

For you to be kissed.

A heart, poisoned by the world’s sickness,

A mind, drenched in the chaos of any other moment

Besides those between us,

Where only love dwelt

In our shadow.
