One Last Kiss to Cave the World

One Last Kiss to Cave the World

A Poem by A Glow in the Pit of My Soul

One day our bones will be brittle with the weight of all we've lived

and our skin will pucker and fold, soft and paper thin

from stretching ourselves too far and wide,

threadbare, faded, and full of stories.

One day we’ll crumble, collapsing upon each other

giving in to the pressure of gravity

beckoning and calling to rest our heads, just so,

and leaving behind our fragile frames

that once sang ballads of passion and furor,

now whittled down into a simple song of peace and purity.

They will find us as the sunlight beams brightly through the shades

a shimmering entanglement of collarbones and gold,

sharp breaths will hit their slumbering lungs like a cut from finer blades

a peculiar stunning spectacle is what they shall behold

for encased within our rib-cages are not our hearts of flesh

but brilliant shining diamonds will be all that is left.

And burned into the ivory are words too true and whole

'we live on within each other's heart,

we are branded in each other’s soul.’
