murdered by love

her body lays shockingly limp

on the hard cold concrete ground

it's a chaotic murder scene

where her heart was brutally torn

from where it once resided

and bloody imprints of fingertips

drawing broken hearts were exposed

with the messy scrawls of letters I and D;

an unfinished sentence never to be completed

and we wonder what she tried to say

but oh—the neighbors heard her last spoken words

'i died for you, my love.'
