"I think it was his eye! yes, it was this! He had the eye of a vulture- a pale blue eye, wIth film over it."
I cut the body leaving no trace of murder
"And this I did for seven long nights-- every night just at midnight-- but I found the eye always closed; and so it was impossible to do the work; for ir was not the old man who vexed me, but his Evil Eye"
Upon Four I hear a knock
"He shrieked Once-- Once only. in an instant I dragged him to the floor, and pulled the heavy bed over him. I then smiled gaily, to find the deed so far done."
I confessed leaving my dirty truths open to see
"First of all I dismembered the corpse. I cut off the head and the arms and the legs."
"As the bell sounded the hour, there came a knocking at the street door."
"Villains! I shrieked, dissemble no more! I admit the deed!-- I tear up the planks! here, here!-- It is the beating of his hideous heart!"
