A many splendored thing

Shattered in pieces and scattered about;
While a heart bleeds profusely anguish speaks out.

How did this happen was he not a good man?
Are we watching him dying from here where we stand?

As blood flows in crimson from the cut of her knife;
Betrayed and abandoned by a woman called wife.

In another man’s arms she slips out of sight;
She did what she had to because she wants him tonight.

Struggling to get up from the place where he fell;
He remembers those words “created in hell”

    Sometimes its hard to tell who the real victom is. All three can be victoms at this point.

    Sad tale this is. Reminds me of some of the movies I have seen where a spouse kills another one who was totally unsuspecting.

    Nice work. Hope this is not a reflection of a personal tragedy. God bless. Keep writing
