The Kiss Of Death - Poem by Ofentse Mercy Hajane

Slithering through the cold winds of winter
Kisses of happiness
Wearing Skull masks
Unable to tell of their own deeds
The forest of dark sages knows the truth of the Gods
Knowledge sapped in their roots
Crows taking refuge under their shadows
Skin whitening under he who woke on Traimera
The hovering of dark menace filled their heads
Each gave life a kiss of death

The spectacles of life fled the face of the day
Horned were their dark intentions
Mouth with torturing thorns
The sine qua non of class they hold of themselves
Gods who depart not to heaven after feeding upon ones heart
Love of horrible eyes that weigh up any with heavy thoughts
Leaving them dim witted and Looney
Their maids gave upon men a kiss of death
Unbearerable where the pains of its venom
Feeling its acidic glowing fluid upon ones veins
Conjuring you
Making you a piece of living alloy
Strangening ones worlds
People you once glorified
People you once loved
People you once cared for
Draining away from your mashed brain
Desire replacing love
Hunger replacing kindness.
The sage dark forest becoming your light
Your home
Knowledge and beauty thrashed upon you in an instant
Renowned in your mind
Is sending these packs of kisses.
A lip away from her neck
It would make you feel at home
Your nature enraged your hunger

Adrenaline would pump to you your cold broken heart
at no ease than an escaping deer would
Savoring from the smell
Heeding the flow

Then in less of an instant
Joy fills your mind
Milding its anticipated moment...

A moment after you realize
You have already mastered the art of the Gods
The art of the kiss of death! ! !

What have one done...
