A View to a Kill

Faithfulness is so easily revealed

Or denouced, with a kiss on lips not mine

I saw your tryst though the mist formed a veil

Over the rest of the garden and vines.

The view outside my window used to glow

With sunshine as dawn blotted out the night

Your blatant affair in the grounds below

Spoiled the vision that should have filled my sight.

You can't imagine the murderous rage

Upon seeing you with him, of all men.

Trust was never an issue at my age;

Distrust I now embrace as a godsend.

Friends you keep near, and enemies closer

Keep that in mind to prevent most murder.

The End
