    My Last Lover

    Gentle caress of fingertips      

    Coolness of breathing         

    Kiss upon my lips

    Shallow heart-beating.


    You’ve become my best friend

    My last lover in living

    Your love to me you send

    All I have to you in giving.


    Your want for me is oh so bad

    Always by my side

    The love you have makes me mad

    No longer can I hide.


    As my soul is gently taken

    Whispers from my final breath

    From living I'm about to awaken

    Because my last lover…............. Is death.

    Incredible poetry... I was not expecting the ending of death as the final lover... but I totally understand the feelings, beginning with your first verse, nealy haunting...

    Tempestlady commented on My Last Lover


    I really enjoyed the rhythm, and meaning in this piece. What seems to start out as flirting, becomes obvious that the lover is accepted, it's not a rape. Write on.....

    In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

    Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
