Fatal Love - Poem by Rickon Chewe

Do you remember when our lips first kissed?
I inhaled your air, temporarily you became a part of me and as with everything I exhaled you away. Venomous is your oxygen. Killing me with your care,
As your care patiently numbs all feeling.
Fatal love, an end with you I will meet my death. My lips cling to yours as I waste away
What seems worthy but worthless breath of my life Because Only you listen to the voiceless voices that speak inside.

What started as an act of attention turned to an affair of relief.
Fatal love, my access of release I feel my tensed body ease each time we speak.
Every night I lie with you, I lay in the sheets of death
But still, precious is that very moment.
Tangle with me as I hang on the very edge, only you should see the last of my days
After all 'all the world is a stage.'

But
do you remember when we first kissed? Did you feel how I felt?
How quickly I fell under your spell.
Funny how heaven felt like hell when you held me, to let me fall for you, I recall you say "just pretend you flying down to me".
I could keep you in my heart but my pockets are all the rooms I have left for you.
You stand the only wrong thing that ever felt right. fatal love be the love in my end
Let your ends be my end even though you expose me to all feeling except heaven.
Fatal love, you are the rising soon to dissipate smoke from my burning heart.

And though now I bid you not adieu, sweet may your farewell be
But madrigal is the poem that you are first not to leave me.
