A garden, a bit overgrown

High hedge, weeds, small house

A corpse of a man middle aged

Lies dead, made still alive

By a teenage girl, in rage

Her grief, her guilt, her anger

The corpse could tell, her

Hands still red, blood not dried

Yet he lives!

In her mind

Despite, her knowing he is dead really

She can't forgive the crime

But for he is dead and so does no wrong

Oddly, she loves him still

Grieves by the body

Dips her hands in the still warm blood

Her tears soon will flood

But not for now until she leaves

The blood lukewarm, cold

He can no longer hear of her pleading!

The End
