Some how I killed her;

With a Knife, pushing deep into her heart spilling blood;

With a Dagger, chipping off her neck and throw her head far away;

With a Stone, crushing her head into thin layers.


Some how I killed her;

With a Snake, secretly putting it on her bed to poison;

With a Scorpion, secretly putting it in her room for an intense sting;

With a Spider, secretly putting it on her body, to kill in shock.


Some how I killed her;

With a Car, dashing on her body over a narrow lane;

With a Train, pushing her on the track and crushing into pieces;

With a Bus, tearing apart the body with speedy wheel.


Some how I killed her;

With a Drink, adding poison so intense;

With a Food, adding poison so sweet;

With a Mushroom, poisonous to eat;


Some how I killed her;

With my Hand, squeezing her neck hardly;

With my Legs, Kicking her heart into pieces;

With my Body, Crushing with weight.


Some how I killed her;

In my Mind, with flowing love;

In my Heart, breaking it;

In my Breath, making still.


A thousand times I killed her;

A thousand times she was reborn;

Looking every moment on me;

Smiled and Laughed like a ripple on a still water.
