To live or to die
To kill is to die. 
Blood does not mix well 
With the human mind;
Oil & water, but we must die,
Killed by life well lived 
Or too short to enjoy, 
To know the value of death.
& when blood, incurred
With wrath, touch body, 
Something happens; like acid
Eroding earth, air eating iron,
You become deformed, incomplete.
Yet life kills random, careless
& the earth is littered with
The graves of small deeds even
On the floor; the last gasp
Of an ant, the grand plot 
Of a spider's web, the patience
Of a gecko ogling the coming night. 
To kill is to know, to die 
Is to forget all knowledge. 
You have killed, your eyes wild, 
Your blood on boil, & how small
Do you feel, how long do you 
Take before the tiny black door
Beckons to you, opens wide, warm, 
Sweet before you & shows you
The truth; to kill is to be
Shackled, to die is to be free?
