As I look back at memories,
I can only remember
The happiness
That glimmered in your eyes
As their edges squinted
When I came into your view

Or, maybe it was your laugh
Whenever I said something stupid,
Remember? That one laugh that also meant
You were likely about to kiss me?

And those kisses of yours -
So warm against my lips
And everywhere else,
So light upon my skin ~
Enjoying the red dancing
For hours that night,
Then watching it drip from a blade

Do you remember the way
You shut your eyes and screamed,
And the way you screamed -
It sort of... Jumped! -
Just as your laugh would have

The squint of your eyes
Were tighter than ever
As you refused to look
Where you left your last kiss
You refused to look at me

But the sound of that cute little laugh
When I told you,
I was going
To kill you -

Sorry darling,
But that wasn't
Another stupid thing
I once said.
I completely forgot to post this - so sorry about that, I meant to have it up and scheduled to be seen today.

Anyways, I was going to scratch this at first - I had tossed the paper in the trash. But I mentioned it to :iconkillerlord123: and he wanted me to post it, so - here it is.

(Originally this poem was supposed to be the "love" topic requested by a friend, but... An aspect of this caused some bad memories to pop up, and suddenly I was writing of murder... Maybe someday I can write on the topic without having death involved... Maybe - but some things are just... hard to get over.)

Well, considering I had originally tossed this out - yes, they sort of were.
