    Many times had I told her to leave
    To come and go with me
    Many times did I lead her to the water
    Yet she refused to drink my thoughts.
    Though maybe it just a glint of hope while she was being held in the capturer’s claw
    All I will never know and remember is she stayed and
    he waited in the driveway
    Shot her in the back of the head as she ran the car into the woods for help
    Shooting her four more times at the clearing just to see if she was dead.
    At work I felt sick
    The moment she was dying.
    Our bond just that deep.
    A relationship like the very sun and moon.
    Because when her sunset my moon dripped away in blood
    Refusing to shine
    Then came the call and I rushed to the daycare where the bastard left our son
    The same blood that birthed him now covered his face.
    I slowly cleaned the last of her life off of him
    Placing the red towel in my pocket.
    Then carried him to my mothers house and returned home.
    Grabbing my pistol
    Reason quickly left with pain
    All that was left was the final act of a brave heart.
    To inflict the same wounds that he’d set on her.
    To reap back what was sewn.
    Let the gun ring five more times for my love.
    And stand over him and ask the same
    Are you dead yet?
    The consequences life in prison or worse,
    Didn’t matter now.
    I was already in solitary without her
    But this sweet voice said, “Put it down!”
    And so I laid it back in the drawer and walked in the rain to see her just one last time.
    She was in the pink coffin
    And still as beautiful as a Chocolate Valentine
    I’d touch her hands so badly wanting to pick her up and throw her on top of the coffin and kiss her like our first time on the hood of the car, but she couldn’t move now.
    So I leaned to her and kissed her lips
    Trying to give her some of my breaths of life, but it was useless.
    Too little to very late.
    The warmth was gone away so gently put her hands back in place
    Walked out leaving her behind.
    The rain pouring as I began to walk home
    I’d add to the downpour
    Let myself cry
    Close my eyes and let it rain ten inches
    But then I felt it with my eyes closed
    Behind the darkest cloud in the east I could feel the glare of the sun rising on my face
    Then it struck me.
    It was her.
    This was where my beloved warmth had gone
    Her wet kiss was now the very rain that struck my lips
    And at this very moment these were her last words
    Her simply telling me,
    “Boo Sunshine Rains On Lovers Blue.”

    Dedicated to Deidre Miller.

    Message to all Brothers. Love our women with all your heart, but when the love is gone or she doesn’t want you anymore. Don’t be so stupid, selfish and coldhearted to go out and kill her. In the end of those actions there is only death and destruction. God has so blessed us with women that are like roses so that they can warm our hearts and show us the power of his undying love. Lets not sentence another rose to an eternal winter and rape the world of something so beautiful. I can only hope that you take my words to heart.

    Sincerely, T.E.

    The imagery was outstanding. My God that was touching, just heart wrenching poet. Your words wrapped the reader up in that love for her that will live on for an eternity. This took my breath away.

    Thanks each and all for the warm comments. This wasn't my spouse or girlfriend that was killed, but it she was a close friend of mine and a coworker. I wrote this in the first third person point of view to give a greater effect. I'm hoping that this work will enlight others and detour them from going down the same tragic route.
