A suicide's note-Does it really mean suicide? Kiss is for love only.Perhaps the poet is referring to love in whose depth he wants to die.- - Short and beautiful.

How gentle and sweet it makes suicide sound. How utterly simple; it almost draws you to wish you could feel the kiss of the river for yourself. Such power with such effortless words...just goes to show how impactful of a writer Langston Hughes was.

Even a suicide note can have the ingenuity of a versatile poet. That's great.

The suicider must have accomplished killing himself in a river. Loaded but short. I love it!
