Pass the bars in the prison I looked to the sky and asked my self why Why should I smile to cover up an already broken heart?How to love, how to cherish, but how to forget is something I never thought.You told and showed how much you loved me but I sawYou sat me down and explained why you cared, but I sawYou smiled with me and strengthen my weaknesses, but I sawYou caressed my feelings, and assured my love, but I sawIt sunk me like a battered vessel lost out at seaI saw you kiss her lips with passion, much longer than you would have kissed meI felt deceived, tricked, and betrayedIt was all deception, but mostly it was the game you playedYou told me you loved me, but you really didn’tThe marriage vows were clearly tangible, but to you they were never writtenThe good fruit of our new marriage was never bittenI told you I would only marry once and divorce is out of the questionIf you would have listened then, you would have understood the lesson.You should have never told me you slept with her; I did not want to knowNow I feel dark and empty like the crow that flew beside Edgar Allen Poe. Death and suicidal thoughts encapsulated my mind.Thoughts of revenge, and murder managed my timeSo amidst the fog in my head, I created the perfect crimeIt was Sunday, our AnniversaryYou both pulled up as I was leaving.Our anniversary was also your birthday so I knew it would be a special eveningI hid in the bushes and watched both of you walk through the doorWhy do dreams fade away and ultimately we all need help?Why do I feel so alone in the world with nobody else?I sat in the bushes and watched the wine that stood on the shelfEventually they would go to the kitchen to drink from the already half drunken wineAnd as they were toasting triggers of excitement went off in my mindI waited for an hour while destiny took it’s time, and soon both would fall on their sideI went inside and stood over my dead husband; he had blood coming out of his mouthI then went around and poured gasoline all over the houseThen I prayed over my husband and wished him the bestThen flipped him over and put my ring and an empty box of rat poison on top of his chestI headed to the door, looked back one last time and threw a match on the floor then left.
