Love Killed Her

Love Killed Her

a Poem by Raquel Swann

Through barriers of trust

Outstretched, She reached

through a beautiful veil

Her fingers trembled with emotion.

Her body followed, then her mind,

And of course her heart.

She floated through clouds,

Amidst lies, deceitful smiles,

She received empty words

As true as a mirror’s reflection.

Her soul had been claimed,

Her body an empty shell.

She returned from her journey,

Different. Her eyes blank,

Her lips bare, and of course without

Her heart.

Dead, walking amongst

The living.

Love Killed Her,

Long before age

Or sickness ever could.

    Every line was simply heart-rending but oddly beauitful at the same time.
    Looking forward to reading more from you, Raquel! ❤
