Case File 0415A

Moments like this

could make anyone sick,

undernourished Puerto Rican female,

anorexic,

her body parts littered the grounds,

she was between 85 to 100 pounds,

so many emergency vehicles around,

but silence was the only sound,

once again on this side of town,

life fails,

as they found

four, six inch nails

buried into her chest,

she suffered horrifically at best,

and the fear did the rest,

the brutality of her death,

would even make a ghost shout,

there was a piercing on her genitalia

that was completely ripped out,

nothing made sense about this case,

it wasn’t a love crime,

and had nothing to do with race,

there were parts of her body

that were nailed to a tree,

horrific images for the world to see,

graphics you couldn’t hide,

all the detectives stood around,

mouth wide,

even death cried,

case file 0415A was like a bad dream,

and the terror must have hugged

that poor girl like steam.

    The human female was tougher then he thought, she battled as if victory is what she sought, the vampire smiled at her,

    The gatherers just stood around and watched the young woman suffering as their brains were being pickled by stupidity.

Beauty hidden in the macabre event. I am always grieving for those that fall prey to crime. Such disregard for human life has become more rampant.

Well Done!

Frank, when I finished reading the first thoughts were of the brutal and sickening videos out of the Mexican drug wars. Women are mutilated and killed in most horrible fashion just like the men. It's a powerful poem that can evoke those sights and feelings my friend.
