Dying of Happiness

And darling,

I will wish happiness for you.

The whole world’s joy

In return of the pain you gave me.

So much ecstasy…

That you will be afraid to even enjoy it.

That you will dread the light at the end of the tunnel,

And will not want to move any near towards it..

And as it will slowly set fear in your heart

And mind and eventually the soul,

Creeping inwards, deep

To consume you

You will realize what it means

To die of happiness.

The same words you once said to me.

Or rather, promised me.

Without understanding them.
