Death on tongues 

Lily of the valley
Rest on tongues
Of lovers who become undone
To slip past life
Into catacombs
Of flames extinguished before
Stained lips, poisoned
Mouth full of death
By beauty
Not from petal
But of leaf
Melted in mouths
Parting kisses
Romeo & Juliet
Knew such a fate of love
To beautiful to keep
Drinking potions
To end a life
That never quite
Lived long enough to fight
Knee deep in lilies
That poison tongues
Not in fate
But lovers
Who could not wait”


Romeo and Juliet
