Sonnet: Epic Thriller

April 19, 2009
why did you leave me, bloody on the floor?
you sacrificed my life for your own good
why did you hide me and walk out the door?
locked in a closet of festering wood
get back here you a****** and say goodbye
you waited until now to stop speaking?
couldn't anyone hear, other than me?
those sly footsteps of a first-time killer
he drove away, couldn't anyone see?
just walking out of an epic thriller
well, here I am dead, still holding this thought
why did you kill me, and never get caught?

sorry, I'm the author and I left 2 lines out when I was coppying it, and it's really bugging me because now it's not a sonnet. Lines 7 and 8 are:
you shot me three times and left me to die
those steps gave you away, justice creaking
sorry about that for whoever's reading this. :)
