If Death Could Smile

If Death could smile
Death would split atop the skull
Peel down in lofty strands
And bloom with a crescendo
Death would become
A delicate bleeding heart
Out from the chasm of the cranium
Love, acceptance, unity
Would expose itself
To the eyes of all the earth's souls
Those whittled by evil and touched by purity
Hearts would stop, and beat backwards
Clocks would melt
The days and nights enchanted
Blessed with the gift of being cherished
And for half a year
As the blood of the heart ripened
Humanity would prosper
Then as the smile began to wilt,
And end as all things do,
The sprouted bud of emotion
Would fall to rest on Earth
Leaving a delicate reminder
That even as the world decays
Death may one day smile again
