Twins Revenge

A. W. Nutter

Fog from my breath in the way
Temporarily impeding my vision
A small lamp, illuminates my prey
Unaware, of his impending execution

Rons wife, conveniently out of town
Visiting a sick relative, her perfect alibi
She must really despise this clown
I wonder if she kissed the fool goodbye

Staying in the shadows around the house
Dressed in black, invisible in the darkness
Entering their kitchen, quiet as a mouse
Through a window, left unlocked on purpose

From the first bedroom a child moans
Peering at the bed and the sleeping boy
The husband was supposed to be left alone
She'll pay dearly for this unexpected ploy

With the silencer in place I wake up Ron
He dresses quickly picking up his keys
Protesting will endanger his bastard son
He drives us deep into the forest of trees

Removing my mask he views his twin
Staring into the face of his supine form
Before he can protest I commit the sin
Then pray for God to help me reform

Burning the body along with the gun
Quickly driving home to start my new life
Showering, I slip into bed with my son
Real father and mother now husband and wife

The suspense builds in this poem. The rhyme works well. You could turn this into a short story some time. Thank you for sharing your creativity with us and for your kind words on my poem. Karen

Really scary, Anthony. And I really didn't expect that kind of finish. Is is a captivating poem with a very interesting plot. I also like the first verse 'Fog in my breath in the way' created images full of mystery from the start...I'm going to fav this, though I'm not so fond of the 'dark, scary poems', I'll make an exception with this one.
