Dark Justice… #CoffinHop a terza rima by Richard Lynn Livesay

haunting woman

my mind churned like ocean waves
voices vibrated a whispering chord
transmitting thoughts of illusory graves

the wind blew like a lion that roared
the window rattled: I grew uneasy
in the tree outside, a shadow soared

it looked like my murdered wife, Gigi
but I had dumped her body in a shoal
I began to sweat my head felt queasy

her shadow was haunting my very soul
the window crashed open with a fury
papers flew in the air and I lost control

a note in blood on the wall read, “JURY”
I reached for the gun from my drawer
Fired at the shadow; everything became blurry

I fell to the floor. Its all over, I’m done for
Put the gun to my temple and evened the score
