Red Wedged-Heel Shoe

On top of the pile___shoes upon shoes One lone wedged-heel red shoe that gives clue That she knew what her fate would be soon Aware her soul__spirit would take flight One lone wedged-heel red shoe that gives clue The owner was last one to die the death Aware her soul__spirit would take flight Memories filled her every thought The owner was last one to die the death Terror, horror with every breath Memories filled her every thought Of family, friends, life, love__children Terror, horror, with every breath Because she knew what fate would be soon Same as family, friends, love__children On top of the pile__shoes upon shoes

Congratulations Sara. When I first saw this I thought it to be for the 'leather voices' contest. that is the image that came to mind. So the picture is there and the form. well done...Margaret

are the red shoes symbolizing the people who were killed.i can see the imagery.it's like a sad movie scene on murder.i wish your mom a wonderful bliss where ever she is. and happy mothers day to you both as well, Sara. -Always&Forever Lynette
