Harmonic Death - Poem by Cat Summers

A shallow breath
A dying sigh
A child's body
Barely breathing
Two thin red lines
Drawn across the wrists
Their scarlet water
Spilling onto the floor
A shuddering gasp
One final breath
The light of a burning candle
Fading in and out
The dying sigh
A child's innocence
Stolen away
On feathered wings of harmonic death
