ESCALATION

E

Agony
Torment
Scars
Blood

If your heart is,
in fact,
as delicate as you
claim it to be;

Why then do you
choose to drag it
through the mud?

 

I’m confused.

 

Ridicule
Harm
Bruises
Tears

If you’re in control,
when you say,
you’ve got this all
covered;

Why then do you
succumb to all
of your fears?

 

She’s abused.

 

Deceit
Betrayal
Unfaithful
Lies

It would appear
that somehow
you’re covering;

For a person,
the likes of which
you once despised.

 

Unexcused.

 

Homicide
Murder
Death
Afterlife

It all came to an
abrupt end –
on this night.

Layin’ motionless
on the floor,
is the deceased –
his wife.

 

He’s accused.
