What is this I see?

What is that hidden behind your eyes?

Is it anger or is that hurt?


I can never tell with you...


Please smile for me.

Maybe then I'll see.

But wait...

What is this?
What is that hidden behind your smile?


it's gone.


Just like a storm,

it comes and passes so swiftly.

Look at me, darling.

What is wrong with you?

Why are you so pale?
Did you sleep?
Or did you toss and turn restlessly

throughout the night?

Oh, alright.

I'll leave you alone then.

(But I won't really.)


My dear, why are you so cold?
Your lips are like ice when I kiss them.

So cold, so harsh now.

What happened to you?
What is this upon your wrists?

Cuts? But why?

Why rip such beautiful silk...?


My love?

Why does your chest stop moving?
You let go of my hand.


Why aren't you speaking to me?
Your eyes look so dark.

The color has left them

and I'm scared.


Please speak to me...


Oh, I see now.

That man has come to take you away.

Don't worry, he took my mother away too.

He told me everyone that goes with him will feel better.

I hope you're happier there.

He promised you magnificent wings.

He told me all beautiful angels get them.


Maybe that man will give me wings too...


But wait...

What is this I see?
What is that beaneath your lips?

I can feel the warmth radiate from you

Even as the cold tries to drown you.

Oh, my.

Is that a smile?
I can see as peace spreads across your face.


But then again,

I can never tell with you.
