The Murder


The Murder


my dearest friend, gone

too quickly slipping into shadows


a moment seems eternity

but everything happens in the blink of an eye

even you


for the briefest of spells

we had something, everything


but after the day went dark

the moon it rushed to paint a world lost

and broken in my heart
