    Cause of Death

    I am dying.


    But no earthly virus
    or disease
    causes my affliction


    Love is my demise.


    Like an I.V.,
    it slowly drips
    into my veins
    poisoning my body.


    Slowly rotting inside.


    are common.
    May cause
    depression ,
    mania ,
    intense pain.


    Do not mix with alchahol.


    Then you inject
    your lethal dose,
    your words
    like a needle,
    your silence
    stops my heart,
    and i slip
    into a dark abyss


    I am dying.


    Cause of Death : Your Poisoned Love

    Hey Calliope~You've done some really neat work here styling this like a Dr.'s order complete with a pharmacy warning label! I also found it a bit amusing, when it came to the side effects! lol Inspired idea!
