Eyes wide Corpse

Poet's Notes

A love story, the passing of a spouse, but their love is uninterrupted by death

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.

Love lasting beyond the finality of death is an intriguing idea - eyes wide corpse!
