I Killed Him Because I Love Him – Declamation Piece

When we held a Literature Week in our school, this declamation piece entitled “I Killed Him Because I Love Him” was declaimed by a 3rd year student in our school. With so much emotion and facial expression, and with this wonderful piece, you will definitely going to feel the message that the performer wants to convey. I even cried when the piece is being declaimed.

Here is the complete piece.


Honorable judge, gentlemen of the jury, people of the Philippines!
Judge me! Am i guilty or not guilty?
But before you sentence me, let me tell you my story.
There was a young girl, 17 years of age
with a curvaceous body, 36 24 36, a long hair and a sizzling eyes…
And being rich as she was, she studied at an exclusive school..
And oh my gosh! I met this guy!
He’s the best player in our basket ball team and hes the heartthrob of our school.
Oh my gosh and his name, guess what? who?
Robie Santillan isn’t it sweet?
Oh my gosh! We became friends, we became friends and later more than that.
After 1 year of relationship we decided to settle down.
The marriage that cut off the ties of our families.
And since his parents disagree, that’s why he was not supported by his studies.
So i decided to give up my studies, and work as a saleslady in a supermarket.
And then one night he returned home he asked for money but i cant give him for I just gave him one last night.
So he walked out and then the next day he returned home. He was as cold and as hard as a stone.
One day, his graduation came and i was so happy!
I expected Robie to invite me but he never said a word.
I didn’t mind it I still attended his graduation ceremony.
I wore my nicest dress ever..
And then when his name was called ,
With a degree of medicine, a Suma Cumlaude, Robie Santillan!
I shouted with glee.
But when I was just stood up.
I was shocked, when another girl stood up and gave that medal to him
I’m supposed to give him that medal, and pin that ribbon because im his wife.
I’m his wife right?
im his wife!
With that unpleasant thought,
I fainted.
And then when he returned home that night,
I confronted him.
“Robie who is that girl?”, I asked
And then he answered ,”  its not your business!”
“But I am your wife Robie”, I answered
“You are just my wife”
How could you do this to me robie?
I gave up my studies: I worked as a saleslady and this? This is how you pay back? You cant just do this Robie, you cant just do this!
“I have to leave”, and when he packed his things
I decided to get my 45mm revolver.
“Robie you cant just leave me. I’m your wife Robie. You are mine Robie
you are mine!”
Hey, honey, be calm.
“No..no..no,,dont leave me
dont leave me robie dont leave me”
and then i decided to go out and
I did the worst thing i made in my whole painstaking life!
“Mr. Robie Santillan, with a degree of medicine, a Suma Cumlaude, you will pay all my labors and sacrifices!”
I shot him.
robie.. robie..
I killed him
I killed in my bare hands
Robie I’m so sorry
And now honorable judge, gentlemen of the jury, people of the Philippines!
Judge me!
Am i gulty or not guilty?
I killed him because I love him.
