En Lillium

I press my lips to you.
Steal the beauty of your
inhale the fragrance
of limp petals
remembering when
they bounced beneath
my touch.

Sipping power from your
decay, toxins release above
steamy, swirling remains.

I softly swallow;
I can taste your delicateness,
as I feast on a fatal remedy.

I plucked you without shame;
tied and dried you
in upside-down darkness.

I steeped you in an unmarked
distilled your essence,
captured your cremated
consumed your name;
you were just too beautiful
to die in vain.
