Death By Love - Poem by Erika Conti

-We are sentenced to Death by Love-

I didn't know
love can feel so extreme
that kills you.

His eyes on me shoot my soul
in a fragment of time sweet
like a poison symphony opening
the way to a river of secret emotions
my earthly body can't contain
and I die, while they
take over
and I die, as the river flows
and I become pure love
and my heart explodes
like stars in the sky, like lights
and blood cries - and we die -

As we die my life's running in his eyes:
places I've been to
lines I've been drawing
every dropp in my portrait
every story in my tale..
