If Love was Death:

If love was death
I would live
for eternity.
Nor would I know
its sweet touch or
if it winked at me.

If love was death
and only came in
the dark of night.
The sun would
shine forever on me
with its glowing light.

If love was death
it would not come
to my open door.
I would not hear
knocking, knocking
just a cry of nevermore.
