Two Ends

Updated on February 5, 2015


He knew damn well what happened,

everything looked crazy and he felt insane,

he was wired tight on cocaine,

the entire scenario was finally explained,

the ransacking of the house,

as well as the repeated superficial

stab wounds to a young woman’s face,

it had to be a long mental walk,

as it appeared that he tried to make

the woman talk,

she really didn’t need the abuse,

because she was very willing,

the cocaine rush got so good,

that he just kept on killing,


twenty or so blade wounds to the face,

a killing thirst,

shit on that, she was at the wrong place

at the wrong time,

he was high on drugs,

like a man on fire,,

the adrenaline brought him higher,

to new sights and sounds,

then the rush ended,

and her body was on the ground,

oh shit,

that’s when reality would hit.

      Frank, this one is powerfully written, drawing the reader into a world of destruction and deeds so unthinkable they boggle the mind. I've just finished reading your second in the Nick P.T. Barnum series and absolutely loved the story. You write like a dream and the action keeps me turning pages.
