The Whispers In Her Ear

Updated on September 6, 2013



Her face washed in tears,

she followed the shadow

to the door at the front of the stairs,

one single candle burned on the window pane,

and love would call,

she stared briefly at a gleaming picture

of the Virgin Mary hanging on the wall,

she then walked in and saw her body

laying on the day bed,

the whispers in her ear

was of the dead,

but she wouldn’t fear,

her pretty face was already hard with death,

and she moved slowly as if to catch her breath,

her love for a young man

was like that of Romeo and Juliet,

she knew she loved him when their eyes met,

but there families would fight,

losing the very sight,

and her body would lay quietly,

in the still of that haunting night,

beside her lay a very pretty hat, red felt,

with matching shoes and a belt,

sadness would coat,

as blood would drip slowly

on her thin, white throat,

she fought back more tears,

or at least she did her best,

as her hands were folded peacefully

on her breast.

      This may be the only type of love that I never understood. The pact to kill themselves thing. I guess I was never the type. I am more of the take a bullet for you type. I will die to save a life but I am not going to die for no good reason. I guess I do not qualify as a romantic... :)
