Poem a Day, Day 16

Poem a day, Day 16
Today's challenge was to write an 'Alfred Hitchcock' poem, or one with a twist at the end. I hope I pulled it off...

Love Poem, or, Anxious Dreams

"I love you." she whispers

"I love you more." I whisper back

"Yeah, you're right." she smiles

It's dark, but the smile is in her voice

her smell

"Why do you stay?"

"I don't know."

"When will you go?"

"Probably soon."

I lay awake

I hear her smile

I see her

Her mangled body lying in a ditch

She's with a much better looking man

The windshield shattered with the impact

He pleases her

Baby, I wish you'd come home soon.

-Justin M. Howe
