“Suspended deep in a sea of Black”…

Dark and filled with deep despair…
He’s quietly slumped in his chair…
Trying to remember all that he dare…

In a slow motion flashback…
Picturing the most violent attack…

They came out of nowhere, from behind…
Leaving wounds and scars that remind…

Both physical and mental…
She was so strong, loving and gentle…

But ripped away from him…
On a fucking drunken whim…

Without rhyme nor any reason…
Both were left to die, badly beaten…

Wrong place at the wrong time…
Victims of a senseless crime…
She was taken down in her prime…

The only one he truly loved…
His soul mate and his hand in glove…

It left her lying in a coma…
They tried their very best to save her…
But she had suffered too much trauma…

To her pretty head…
How he wished those words remained unsaid…
When they told him, she was indeed dead…

Leaving him utterly heartbroken…
Paranoid and unspoken…

Engulfed in such sadness…
Surrounded by pure darkness…

Not able to speak…
Feeling so very weak…
Tears rolling down his cheeks…

Not knowing what to do…
He wished it was her,
who had pulled through…

And not him…
Now he sinks, can no longer swim…
And soon will be singing a painful hymn…

Then left to get on with his life…
Without his ever loving wife…

And now filled with despair…
He slumped quietly, in the chair…
Remembering the smell of her hair…
It’s all that he can now bear…
Life is not fair…
