Last Lies Under The Bridge

Intricately planned, all eventualities covered
No more excuses, thickly buttered
When darkess falls, She'll be rid of the pain
After everything, she'll never see him again.
Lie after lie, empty promises, fuelled with deception
destruction, humiliation untold dejection
No more pushing, no more bloody punches
She's found the truth to all those founded hunches
Now he'll pay for the damage that lies deep
that made her crumble to the bottom of the heap
but now she's strong, now she's vexed
Now she knows what's coming next
Conversation overheard, etched the plan
to rid her of that demon man
In shadows she follows
surreptitiously in the hollows
inviolable now with evil as her guide
love and protection, for so long denied
made her turn to satan's side
She with equanimity, her mind on avaunce
Primed for the deed, she knows her sentence
He's to late to beg for his repentance 
He's unaware of the death knell
Moonlight casts a lurid luminence, a black magic spell 
His last tryst once more under the bridge, lit his cigarette
Like an apparition before him, his face she wouldn't forget
Stupified, eyes open wide
who would speak for him Jekyll or Hyde 
just about to say !
but he didn't have a chance
She blasted him away!

    Very vivid and dark write, thank you for recommending it. The abused rising up to kill their abuser. Justice served. Well done.

    whoa whoa whoa... you cant just kill people O_o. you have to look for any little good inside all the bad... look into the future, not the past... if nothing else he made you stronger. he gave you the insight to know what you want and by neglecting you he empowered you to get it. what happens in our life only helps mold us into who we are, but mostly its choice ;)
