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
"Why do you stay?"
"I don't know."
"When will you go?"
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.
