Tale Of Lovers True (poem)

How did it start he didn’t know

But what this was won’t let him go

He prays for death so this will end

What was the wound which he must sew


He just had coffee with a friend

A quaint old shop just down the bend

They shared a cup of troubled brew

So troubled heart could freely rend


He heard a tale of lovers true

A tale which sadly now is through

Friend’s wife was having an affair

A fact that he already knew


What his poor friend was unaware

Was he who held her favored stare

Seeing friend’s pain brought thoughts profound

And as friend left he just sat there


Then from outside came awful sound

A screeching car had target found

He dropped regrets to rush outside

And found his friend there on the ground


And there amid the blood’s red tide

He fell to deed with anguish cried

And there began the endless flow

As one man lived another died
