    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.

     

    Side-effects
    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.

    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!

    Torn heart, hang on ..hold out. An effective prescription is around the corner .. approved by the FDA. Tears rain .. throughout.
