How I Died (By Curiosity)

Photo taken from the WEB


One day, on the lowly terrace,

when fables and sugarcoats

left the Judas’ lips,

I died…

a slow, internal death.

“Sophie!” I cried out.

I fell upon the cold ground.

She stationed over me—

with a calloused stare.

The last words from my mouth,

I struggled to utter.

“I still love you… I always will!”
