“There’s a killer on the road”…

~

Lost within his lifes direction…
He took the wrong train connection…
His destination is unknown…

His eyes survey the gathered crowd…
A quiet coach, no noise allowed…
He sees her sat alone…

Keeping her eyes on the book…
He was bewitched by just one look…
She’s chilled to the bone…

She doesn’t even know his name…
His evil crimes or his hidden shame…
Or the heart that’s made of stone…

He’s craving her undivided attention…
She’s floating in an air of tension…
Into confusion she is thrown…

Trying to avoid his charming stare…
It could be fun, if she’d only dare…
Common sense on hold…

A spark of innocent conversation…
Invites her to think thoughts of temptation…
Her confidence has grown…

She begins gently flirting with her hair…
In his trap, shes now been snared…
She plays with her phone…

Fallen for his devilish smile…
His journey becoming more worthwhile…
But time has now flown…

He leans in for a stolen kiss…
Her company he’ll never miss…
She’s lost in his twilight zone…

She never felt the sharpened blade…
With her life, she’s sadly paid…
His hand stifles her moan…

Quietly slumped in her bloody chair…
No one around noticed or even cares…
He plants a kiss on her cheekbone…

Another added to his list…
A serial killer in our midst…
The man who angels disown…

  1. Jamie, you write some really striking poetry. Should I assume that the songs at the end of your posts are the inspiration for your verse? This one is particularly unsettling and intense.
