I Invite Death - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

My arm
around your waist
this kiss
this embrace

I invite Death
& Desperation
to look into
our face

& laugh
at their despair
& desolation.

    Short and sweet and defiant. I like its brevity and the lover's triumph. I also like how it now becomes 'our face' courtsey of the kiss. A clever little thing that suckers the Big D.

    love Dee Dee

    What a charming poem for an apparently lovely lady...who touches others lives with her rainbow! (Report) Reply
