Upon my mouth
Plant your breath
Lips of life
Forestalling death
And in time
With lips as one
In sight of none
There is nothing left

Upon my mouth
In darkness sent
Wreathed in love
A voice to vent
And in time
What words will come
Whispers soft one by one
Until fallen spent

Upon my mouth
Etched there a smile
Granted by lips
Made ever worthwhile
And in time
When all is done
Look for the one
Whose mouth is reconciled

Upon my mouth
Your heart will be
Named a name unspoken
As it silences me
And in time
When love has won
Far from the sun
Your lips, my mouth, prophecy

then she thinks about her life...
Pulls her hair back as she screams,
I don't really want to live this life!"
