I WANT TO DIE WHILE YOU LOVE ME by Georgia Douglas Johnson.

I want to die while you love me, While yet you hold me fair,
While laughter lies upon my lips And lights are in my hair.
I want to die while you love me,
And bear to that still bed Your kisses turbulent, unspent To warm me when I’m dead.

I want to die while you love me, Oh, who would care to live,
Till love has nothing more to ask And nothing more to give?
I want to die while you love me, And never,
never see The glory of this perfect day Grow dim or cease to be!!!!!

Behold him! A Triton-the peer of the two;
Un-riddle this riddle of “outside in”
White man’s children in black men’s skin…..
