Eyes wide Corpse

Defying realness
Telling me still more
She’s not what she appears to be, not now, not ever
Black, hollow portals to her self 

I knew her
I loved her
I can still see her

Lying eyes wide on the white table
She still loves me
She will always star in my life’s fable

In my purgatory of love, I will always remember her eyes wide
Anguish I hope will subside
Eyes wide corpse

This is really beautiful... Love doesn't end from one day to the next. Not even by the anguish.
