Kill it Softly

tumblr_n1s21zvb171tt9bamo1_250

Love too deep, too fast

A dagger that strikes before

You see his face, whole.

 

Can it be a crime

If no one saw the murder?

Wounds can heal quickly.

 

Ashes are gone, now

Even the fire has died,

Dark, crusted pieces.

 

Just a shadow hides

In the corner of a heart

No one remembers.

  2. I love how this poem raises the subtlest hint of a question to keep the reader going. “Can it be a crime
    /If no one saw the murder?/Wounds can heal quickly.” This stanza, and the stanzas after, tie everything together so well!
