Tombstone Tales: The Kiss of Death / Forever Breathless

A black widow came to me

and said:

"As in ancient times,

crown thy head

with thorns and celebrate

this celestial body of mine

as I kiss you

to your Death.

Drink my blood-red wine

and enjoy the joy of my flesh

and the fresh flowers blooming

in my country flooding

of milk

and honey, run with me

through the woods and love me

  1. This is one of my favourite monuments, I saw it for the first time earlier this year and looking into it’s vacant eyes is like staring at death itself, it’s amazing.

  2. That picture is just something else. It's eerie and I can't seem to look away.
