loss of power

wrap your fingers around
my throat
not too tight
so my breath slips through

kiss me deeply
feel your grip tighten
as I quietly gasp for air
you hold my life in your hands
on your lips

reluctantly release your grasp
when my fingers graze your cheek
my thumbs wipes away a tear
shed at your loss of power
