Murderous Hand

by Milly Hayward   Jul 4, 2017


Blood red is the shadow round your eyes
as you look out on dying skies
winds cut through you like a knife
when whispers taunt from the afterlife

Memories swirl around in your head
of one once lived, who now is dead
life's unravelling with just cause
murder by the hand that's yours

Kindness was her middle name
her beauty made your blood enflame
jealousy was your souls undoing
cause of all that trouble brewing

Now her body lays deep in the soil
your minds trapped in dark turmoil
her spirits here, and now is black
hate will hound you till you crack

Murdered souls will have blood revenge
villains crimes they will avenge
fingers open, drop to your knees
there's nothing left that will appease

Devil rubs his hands with glee
there's nowhere left for you to flee
life's unravelling with just cause
murder by the hand that's yours
