Her eyes were transfixed upon him, 
Her face bore a perplexed look of utter disbelief, 
Hands drawn close to her chest-
Shielding the scarlet mosaic of blood.
The vibrant colors had turned into a ghostly white, 
Her mouth was open in an awkward shape, 
Trying desperately to squeeze out some words.
Tears streamed down the 'once rosy' cheeks, 
She experienced a sudden thrust of agonizing pain; 

As a final action, she recalled the past memories, 
They were so much in love, (or seemed to be in love) , 
They were inseparable, Oh! 
all the promises he'd made to her, 
Of lifelong companionship & continual support, 
They seemed so hollow now, false & unreal; 
Oh! the divine moments, were they all illusory too? 
Yes, her life was only a struggle in vain! 
He, whom she'd trusted above all, Had
betrayed her, had stabbed the knife into her heart
And tore it apart
With a merciless blow; 
'How....' the words faded away into the murky silence
The blood congealed in the circulating veins-
Her lifeless body crumpled on the floor....
