Last Breath

Black as the night

You moved toward me

Muttering words

I cannot hear

Black ribbons of hair

Float around me

Strangling your desire

You pulse and shift

I flash a dahlia smile

The darkness of your heart

Takes away

My last breath

  1. I love the dark images of this piece 🙂
    Good work, Lara … very good … “the darkness of your heart takes awat my last breath” Whoa

  2. Very fitting if you know the story; a nice tribute to the unknown, there.
