I Know Who You Were

I know you,

All of you,

Sitting across from me...

He was my husband

We were slaves

The night after our wedding night

He was sent

To be a gladiator,

He died the next morning.

And her, she was my sister.

She poisoned her bread

To end her life

I ate it instead,

On accident.

Then there was him,

He is fatter now, and has blue hair...

He was my lover

My husband found out

I was hanged

The next morning....

But you, sitting here next to me,

I'm not sure who you were.

Did I know you?

Just sit here next to me

Tell your soul

To sing me a gentle song

I will tell you how I know you.

The End
