A SIX-WORDS POEM CHALLENGE
#SIXWORDSBRO

Her:
I’m falling deeper
Into the water
I’m being suspended
By the hope of tomorrow
But as I fall
I think of you
And I’ve sunk deeper
And no light can go through

Him:
I’ve been waiting for a lifetime
What’s another minute
I’m in my perfect world
But without you
I’d leave it all in a minute

You’re all I desire
I want to be consumed by your fire
Nothing can stop us
If we lie here together
On the brown grass
Our attraction never tires

Her:
Kiss me
Make me feel alive
Like the ocean and its waves
Love me
Like the sun shines throughout the day
Touch me
Before this world turns gray

Him:
I need you
Like the world needs the day
Let me kiss you
And show you I’m okay
The world revolves
Around the Sun
But my world revolves
Around your vitality
I hope our forever is enough
You’ll never stop loving me
I love you my sweet honey bee

Death came at my door this morning,
It was bland and cold and awoke my tears with its raspy voice.
I started caving in, my eyes shutting blindly from the light.
Death wasn't dark. It was godly looking and bright.  

It came from the shadows like a star,
Hiding with the constellations that drew my lips in endless heights.
I never imagined death could look so cruel;
becoming the one thing I loved the most.

Death stopped in front of me and I watched my life wear out,
pain tugging at the seams like claws from Freddie Krueger's gloves.
It was a nightmare yet it was dressed in eloquence.
For a second peering into its eyes, I thought it was life.

It pulled out its hand, falling in love with the fear in my eyes.
I fell to my knees and began to cry.
It was so bright I could no longer see,
but I did what I always do and left my lover to bleed.

— The End —
