i heard a shot that broke the silence of the night. i even tried to look back. i tried to look at his direction as i felt warm liquid dripping down my back. i tried to reach it and saw red liquid in my fingers. i was shot. he fired the gun aimed at my heart.

he sat beside me as my legs gave in to the pain. he caressed my head, brushing my hair with his fingers. he’s muttering incoherent words. he’s stammering…

i closed my eyes and i saw our story… how we met… how we ended up together. i saw his betrayal. i saw myself crying. despite of all the hurt he’d caused me, i was still hoping we could work things out.

“sagapo, a ghra…” he whispered. i opened my eyes and saw the truth. only, this new hurt he’d inflicted is something i just can’t laugh off.

“i’m sorry…”, his last words sounded empty as i closed my eyes for the last time and gave away the final breath of life…

Where It Ached

Her whole body ached as blood flows from it. Finally, she’s feeling the peace she had wanted so much. The sharp blade of the dagger drips her blood… warm blood… her blood… She tried to smile as memories filled her senses… as her strength fades…

She remembered him as she drifted into unconsciousness. In her mind she saw him smiling at her, his eyes whispering silent promises. She felt her lips form a smile… It was as if she was at that moment again. In her sub-consciousness, she felt her hands reached for him. Just as she was about to, the vision faded. Her hands fell at her side.

The next image she saw was what had hurt her and caused her pain. She saw him leaving her alone… in that time when she needed him most. She was calling him again and again… He didn’t look her way. What he did was enough to make her insane.

He had caused her so much pain. She’d rather be insane than feel all the hurt he’d given her. Pain filled her heart. She was at lost. After months of loneliness and crying, she did what she thought was the best thing to do… She went to her apartment, took a knife and stabbed herself where it ached.

Tonight was that night… She could feel her life going weaker against each minute that passed. As she closed her eyes to accept what she had given to herself, she heard him speaking… His voice was inaudible, but she can sense that he was afraid. There were even tears from his face, falling to her face.

He was calling her… He was doing everything he can to stop the bleeding. She could hear him now… His words clear but frightened. He was asking her forgiveness. He was asking her to talk to him. She wanted to… She tried to open her mouth to speak but she had no more strength to do so… she heard him cry.

He was telling her to fight. With her remaining strength, she shook her head… lifted his fingers to his lips and whispered: “I love you…”

She gave him her forgiveness. She smiled when he held her hand and kissed her bloody palm. With that, she breathed her last…
