As Lightning Growls

Updated on October 20, 2011

I guess I really did love him……

Rewind to the beginning

When love was new

Then became old

Taken for granted

The sight of him made her sick

His voice was like nails

Crawling across a chalkboard

The scent of him curdled her milk

Laughter she use to love

Sounded in her ears

Wolves baying at the moon

Now as she stood over

His cold rigor mortis body

Eyes wide open

Staring out into nothing

Mouth agape frozen in motion

Catching last breath of air

Appearing like a blowfish

How tragic the sight, but

That one thought crossed her mind

And then like her love for

Him it vanished into thin air

As lightning growled across

The heavens

      Makes me wonder what happens in between that moment of staring adoringly into your beloved's eyes, can't take your eyes off this turkey, to this where you end up cringing at the sound of his loathsome laughter and visualize him as a fetid corpse! Just wondering, but meanwhile this is amazing elk ellis. Regards, snakeslane
