The Kiss

This isn't my "hesitant question"... This is something else, a poem I wrote a while back... If anyone doesn't understand it by the end, then please ask; otherwise it sounds really weird... I tried to read this aloud to my friends and I kept cracking up.

Nice.
Your soul is beautiful.
Your breath
Your air- Nice.
Your breath is my air, and without, I have none.
I have nothing.
You have everything.
I need you.
I want you.
Let me have you.
Let me take you.
Beneath my folds.

A story now...
Oblivion comes on rattling breath,
A being known as worse than death.
Not soul nor saint nor man’s device…

Wouldn’t that be nice?

Blindfolds of dark, an empty night
Let cold fog shroud us far from sight.
Like steam, it creeps the windowpanes,
Hiding you and all your shames.
Scarred and scabbed these hands will take,
Take the pain, take the heartbreak.

We drown, down,
Submerged in ice,
Wouldn’t that be nice?

Hear it, feel it, the pain, despair.
We’ll help you let it go, forget,
It was ever there.
Cries and screams of sacrifice, a vice.
Let it go. Join us.
Wouldn’t that be nice?

We preserve you,
We dance in dreams.
We deserve you,
Cut the seams.
This romance,
Oblivion.
...Nice?

Who am I?

I am you.

You are I.

I am at turmoil.

Beyond oblivion. Beyond death.
I bring oblivion on rattling breath.
I am worse than death.

A story now...
You tear me apart, you stamp on my dreams, you mock me, in all your soulful schemes.
Cut the seams, cut the seams.
Screams.
Screams.

Beneath my folds.
Let me take you.
Let me have you.
I want you.
I need you.
You have everything.
I have nothing.
You are my air, and without, I have none.
Air is nice.
Breath is nice.
Your soul is beautiful.
Nice.



I could have just as easily called this poem "Nice"- but the double meaning of "The Kiss" was too good to pass up, and I imagine it makes for good click bait.
