Poison

POISON

 

Her body writhed and then it froze

The mug lie broken near her hand

He placed on her a single rose

 

He brushed away a curly strand

Her eye stared blankly up at him

The mug lie broken near her hand

 

He hummed his favorite Christian hymn

With garden shears, took back her ring

Her eye stared blankly up at him

 

Remembering romantic spring

Before the neighbor stole her heart

With garden shears, took back her ring

 

They’d ridden in a horse-drawn cart

She’d ride on rippling shores no more

Because the neighbor stole her heart

 

A darkness crept along the floor

Her body writhed and then it froze

She’d ride on rippling shores no more

He placed on her a single rose
