Rest in Peace


The church was packed full to capacity, so many mourners at a sad goodbye,

Their weary eyes so red from constant crying, so many voices asking why?


The priest stood sombre at the pulpit, holy bible held in his trembling hand,

Quoting scripture from the holy book, and asking gods' flock to understand


He spoke of a life that was brutally taken, of a future that was cruelly denied,

Of a young woman enticed from her home and viciously beaten until she died


Shattered parents sat weeping silently, holding on to each other for dear life

Two lives completely shattered, their hearts pierced as if by a butchers knife


The coffin was bore by four brothers who longed to see their sister once again

Their faces etched in anguish, so desperately wanting to erase their parents pain


As the priest scattered earth upon the casket, a thunderstorm lit up the charcoal skies

The heavens opened with a rapture, and icy rain fell like teardrops from angels eyes


The loved ones and friends departed in time, the church stood empty but for one man,

He hid behind an veil of silence and continued to abide by his well thought out plan


Standing close behind him, whispering damning words that he could not fail but hear

He turned slowly to face his accuser, & saw the remnants of a girl who died in fear


I watched him as he fell slowly to his knees, as he clutched at his chest and cried out

His eyes were set in sheer confusion, his last thoughts were clearly ones of doubt


I left him lying at the alter, where soon the devils henchmen would come to feast

And in the morning his flock will find him and shed tears for their beloved priest


I will not attend his funeral , nor will I shed any tears for his premature demise

For this is the man who killed me, then hid behind his church to peddle lies


I was just a school girl when I met him , when he seduced me with his beguiling charm

Our little secret he told me, a secret that if discovered would bring us both to harm


So it was on that fateful night when he turned from someone serene to someone wild

When he beat me so savagely and took not only my life but also that of our unborn child


Now I live on in the memories of my loved ones, in the photographs of times gone by

I rest in the peace of my killers damnation and watch over my family from a distant sky

Oh my goodness, what a tale, what a tragedy! Am almost lost for words. This is heartbreaking from the word go, just wasn't expecting its ending. You've cleverly built this into a horror story that contains the most awful of truths, gothic- modern, revenge taken, tears of pleasure mixed with dread.

"I rest in peace of my killers damnation and watch over my family from distant sky." How much better could you have stated this line, it's perfect. I loved this, and in the end; sweet revenge. You have a way of pulling off neat little surprises, I like that.
