A Craving Soul

And he told me that he was dying,
A dying youth pleaded me to stay.
but he did never leave,
instead I stayed there forever.
death smiled and dropped its head,
“we will stay together”, to him I said.
I wrapped his hand, and the soul drifted away!
Nobody was left behind,he held my hand anyway!
A skinless lover and a beloved’s craving soul!
Never did they falter never did they fall!
