The gentle mourning wind caresses my face
Tears create a stain
Upon my cheek
A knife plunges into my chest
Though not a knife made
Of ordinary metal
Forged in hellfire
And bejeweled with my guilt
Glistening blood-red and
And a hopeless midnight blue
They wink and laugh at my misery
As life flows from my body
I notice the sun setting
The brilliant ball of gold
Disappearing behind
Relentless waves of the deep sea
I know it's time to leave
A saddened wail breaks the silence
And it is over
