This a poem within a short story.

I knew the day would finally come when I would open my eyes from death and see my life no more. I remembered taking one last look before I walked out the door. I didn't listen to my heart nor did I pay attention to the warning signs. Now at the funeral, as I laid in my casket my poem called, "A Dying Love" is being read by the preacher. He reads:

Dying at the hands of another.

I was here on earth.

My life did matter.  Who were you to end my life?

I had dreams and a future, But you couldn't see it Nor did you care.

To you life wasn't fair, Since I chose not to be your wife.  

How dare you say That I took you through When all I had I gave.

For payment it cost my life.

If I were here today, The sad part about it I would still love you. On that note, the casket was closed and there I still laid cold and alone. Still nobody to call my own.

What a compelling piece of work! To die at the hands of the one you love and yet love just the same! What a Christlike attitude.

Truth about love, you said it... Just because we are no longer together does not mean I no longer love you. I like this one.

Love is eternal and you died for it, love is the greatest force in the universe. And because you died love lives and permeates heaven, sky, and earth, while challanging each of us to be immersed in it! An
inspiring piece Louise. Peace!!!

You have expressed how love can be so tramatizing and so tragic with this poem. Love is powerful and sometimes you can't help loving some people even though you know they are not good for you. You also send the message that one must focus on giving love to the right people in life, the deserving and those that will shares it in a recipocal manner. Keep the passion going, love needs to be heard from all sides. Keep it coming.

Whew! Talk about good! I like the tension in this piece. The poem is called, "A Dying Love" but the flipside of that is that in the end your love never really died it lived on eventhough you were alone. That's Powerl & Keep doing your thing sistagyrl!
