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....
