Crime Scene

Wednesday Words
When they found her
The scene was a mess
It’s broken glass
And a bridal veil
She was nailed
Right to that wall
Where her mother’s
Portrait had been
On either side
For all to see
In great big letters
Scribbled two words
Written with wood ash
On one side
A dusty smudge
The word love
The other word written
With her own lipstick
Smeared all around 
A bright red truth
They couldn’t figure 
What it all meant
They couldn’t figure 
What it all meant

I wrote these dark and creepy words last year. It is spooky season and time to revisit this vignette about a murder. If you want to hear the song, click here for a YouTube video.
