A poem

The last time we met

we kissed

Love has hands

Long and strong ones

They grabbed my neck

Found their way for my vocal cords

And tore them into pieces

Love has hands

And big round eyes

Every time it looks at me

My skin burns

And my eyes turn into ash

The last time we met

You probably kissed the ash
