"A Loss of Life, a Life of Loss"

Submitted by Eccentric Entomophile

she give me a kiss
of loss;

a loss that gives breath
to spreaders of death
by hands that are not
their own

a loss that gives care
to callous poor air
as it struggles to renew
its self

a loss that may feed
the dire in need
for whom too much is
their own self

she hastens to flee
in spite of my plea
to share with me loss
once more
