negative heartbeat

she kissed me
with lips
that had taken
a cerulean shade
the chill
as certain
as the grave
sank into
my sunken cheeks

uncertainty
in the whorls of fog
that made me
wonder
what was dying
in that
listless kiss of frostbite
burning
through her vacancy

heavy eyelids drift
along her morose
benediction
in this madness
somewhere between
crying
begging
praying
and giving up

every nerve set aflame
in the sudden
vacuous absence
even as the
negative heartbeat
slowly consumed
her dissonant smile
in spiderweb cracks
across her frozen facade
