"Crime" Part 1

Updated on February 27, 2018

 Murder Mystery

My heart was a flutter
the first time I saw you,
like a million butterflies
trapped inside my chest,
longing to be free.
The first time,
I laid eyes on you,
I swear,
my heart skipped a beat.

And in the blink of an eye,
you were gone.
Not a fingerprint,
not a footstep,
not a mark,
not a trace
left behind.
Not a hair from your head
out of line.
The day you murdered me...
You left no proof of the crime.

No leads to go on.
No suspects to blame.
No clues to this puzzle.
A mystery you remain.

      A barnstorming arrangement of amazing criminal mastery. LOL. I love the lines "...The day you murdered me...

      You left no proof of the crime..."

      That is just great. And making it a crime just makes it all the more pronounced. I love your damn the torpedo style of confronting the thing. Oh, and I love the new pic too. Heh.

      its really both. it was love at first sight, but she never saw him again, and it killed her, metaphorically speaking. she would spend her whole life looking for him, but had no idea who he was. just a face with no name and nothing to go by. and she wasted her life away and never loved anyone else. hmm perhaps i should do a part 2 of this...

      So now I'm wondering if this is a love lost or one of those chance encounters. When you only see someone, feel an instant attraction and can never forget them.

      thanks for visiting matt! stop by anytime! yes romance mysteries are the best elizabeth, and this was a case of love at first sight, but the guy did not see her or (maybe he did too but couldnt stop) either way its like he turned a corner and he was gone. perhaps she will never see him again, which is the crime, how he kinda "murdered" her, nothing from my real life doug, just came to me yesterday so i went with it. i wanted to portray the moment like it was a crime scene investigation.
