A Boy

The beautiful woman
A rapturous flower






Has been destroyed
By the untamed water
I n c o l d b l o o d

She remains an unforgotten memory
Burning inside the mind

A blissful moment cries
Into the foreboding night

A boy walks along the water
Yearning for the beautiful woman
Inside the mirror of his consciousness

Approaching the door to his home


The place where care was overflowing
From the beautiful woman


Unto himself

Underneath the new moon





Eerie silence

Within the darkened home
He pushes up the stairs

Behind the door lies a bloody knife


A pungent odor reeks of death






The boy stops

A slight p u s h


The door creaks open
A man steps out
Mad with grief



Attacks
The bloody knife will stab

The boy

Runs


Quickly down the stairs



Looking over his shoulder




Tripping on edge


A falter in step



Trapped and petrified

By the bloody knife





The man lunges
And drips glisten
The boy bleeds




Profusely
Painfully left alive

Leaning against the stone wall
The man

Watches in utter silence


As a warm flickering light
Engulfs the darkened home



Destroying all the evidence

And within the burning building








A boy
