And I Died... - Poem by I Am Rebel

On that day, in that moment, I died
Lost everything in one fell swoop
One slip of the tongue and that was it
I died

There was a moment when I thought it was okay
That I hadn’t done anything wrong and it would be alright
That it would not matter what I had said, but it did
So I died

The spark faded from my eyes and I could feel my tongue growing dry
The life seeped out of me and drifted away on the wind
My last breath caught in my throat
And I died

It was a dream, just dream, it never really happened
I have woken up and everything’s fine
But wait, it can’t be, you look at me so, then I realise
I’m dead

It was such a small thing I said, nothing more than a whisper
But it has given me a lifetime of pain, and now I don’t care
Recklessly running, screaming, desperate to get away, but I can’t
Because I’m dead forever, I will never escape it
That secret that I can never take back
Killed me
