Fears Height

Morning sun beats through a car window A dreadful scream pierces flat silence Penetrates my core with its violence Wanton provocation sits in limbo The wholesome effects of a victims fears Alarming concern ravished my being Couldn’t believe what I stood seeing Insidiously justified as horror leers A reckless behavior takes control His figure lurking in the bushes Victim sees a chance and pushes Ravenous scum of misery and dole She runs to the side of my backyard Terrified as she flails and screams He follows the fence under the beams Swinging with vengeance, she strikes him hard She found a shovel against my home Knowing the rapist needed to die Seeming renewed, she looked to the sky Reaping his death as the sun still shone
