Betrayal Of The Heart - Poem by Leah Rochelle

The silence was deafening;
Nothing but hte whispers of the night's wind.

Her eyes reflected the silver of the moon,
Whom was gimacing down upon her.

Her body lyed down in the crimson she called her own;
A pool of blood not deserved to be spilt.

Her poor soul looks not once at her cold body,
But at the man who's own hand pulled the trigger.

He smiles and takes a step away,
But not until the tears came down his face to stop him.

Looking back at the life he has taken,
He falls to now stained ground.

    Nice poem. Make it even better by fixing a few small typos and grammar errors:

    The silence was deafening;
    Nothing but the whispers of the night's wind.

    Her eyes reflected the silver of the moon,
    Who was grimacing down upon her.

    Her body lay down in the crimson she called her own;
    A pool of blood not deserved to be spilt.

    Her poor soul looks not once at her cold body,
    But at the man whose own hand pulled the trigger.

    He smiles and takes a step away,
    But not until the tears come down his face to stop him.

    Looking back at the life he has taken,
    He falls to now-stained ground.

    Nice use of imagery. What a war within the guilt! . Please spellcheck 'gimacing'. Is it grimacing? (Report) Reply

    Guilt for an innocent life taken away eats up heart of the culprit to grave. (Report) Reply

    Oh how sad! True love always forgives. Tue love always seeks happiness in her / his beloved. This is true love! except that it just ended sad.
