I never thought I could feel so safe

I was right

-

Yet, I never realized

As a run along… trying to make up for lost time

-

I couldn't sleep

But when I was with you

It didn't matter that you just sat there

Writing

You didn't mind my company

That touched me

-

As I run

To the meeting

Expecting you to be there with others

I didn't notice the drops of silence

Crying "murder" as the fell

To the blood soaked floor below.

-

A scream escaped my startled being

As I saw you

Pined on that tainted wall with your own sword

-But it wasn't tainted; your blood couldn't taint-

Your eyes still stared into space

Although I knew you were dead

-

I knew the tears where running down my cheeks

I knew the others could see me weep

And now they see you too

"Beware" the word echo in my mind

And revenge is my poor caring soul's

New goal.

-

They had to lock me up

To keep me from killing him

-Or rather from being killed by him-

Your image in my mind

You could have woken me before you left
