Once Upon A Time: a reflection

BY MARCELLA DECOUD

Once upon a time,
I thought you were mine.
As days passed by,
I thought we were perfectly fine.
Until of course,
I didn’t notice the signs.
You began to feel ill,
I noticed you always taking pills.
As days passed by,
You would be clammy and pale,
You began saying your life was just a living hell.
I didn’t mind it at first,
I thought you would eventually be fine.
Until I realized the worst possible thing on the last night,
You were dying.
