Death With Her

Death With Her

A Poem by Jessica Jean

Her eyelids shut
As the purple stardust blew in
It swirled her mind
Like a river of diamonds

I'll be waiting
Her lips managed in a smile
From a last burst
Of warm blood
The burst that lights the body up
Like a sun for a second
The burst- that in a moment- is gone

But she said she would wait
And when I lie down
It will be with her
Our heads together
Swirling in stars
Stuck in a diamond
Rainbow faces of our lives
And we point them out like constellations

"The burst- that in a moment- is gone" I read that line many times, it is truly beautiful, and haunting. Nice strong structure and use of imagery throughout ... well done!
