Midnight Murder

23 01 2012

Five gunshots resonated in the night

Waking me up in a startling fright

I brushed it off, nothing could be wrong

But then I heard the ambulance’s song

And quickly proceeded to bite my nails

Thoughts of  a murder and all it entails

I made up a thousand stories in my head

Though nothing could mask the worry and dread

Not a mile from my home a soul just went dead

The ambulance resumed its death-tolling cry

As it lit up my neighborhood and charged right on by

Eventually I fell into a stiff-no good sleep

So scared was I to make a peep

The next morn I studied the news

But failed to find any useful clues

To a murder that last night had happened

Surely a disaster not deliriously imagined

The gunshots were, but the rest was my overactive imagination at 1:00 AM

A frightful night indeed it seems
And fraught with such unrestful dreams
But I confess a gratefulness
That you are safe and they did miss

The sounds of sirens on a quiet night
bring fear and dread to all in sight
A mother , a son , a daughter ,a wife
The sounds of sirens
Another life

Well written my friend
