"I do not intend to tip-toe through life only to arrive safely at death!" -- Unknown

A crooked smile,
Hangs across his face.

I edge away.
He closes the gap.

I wonder what it would take.
To leave.

More than I can handle.
Most likely.

I could pray for guidance.
But I won't.
Why should I?
It's counter-productive.

I look over his shoulder.
People ignoring the man
(And lady.)
in the alley-way.


I bet.
If I call out for help.
No one will come.

I've heard that yelling.
It works.

But he has a gun.
Poised and ready.

But I'm not.

Will I die?
The thought makes me

But acceptance comes.

My life was short.
But happy.
(I guess.)

They'll find me.
In the alley.


The killer would
be found.

Oh well.


The author's comments:
Yes, I know the title for this work is misleading. I just liked the sound of it at the moment. This is how I think I would act in a similar position, and I purposely made the man have blocked intentions.
