The Husband - Part III

He recollects Bryan’s brown eyes looking up to him,
begging for mercy, as he chokes him continually.
Bryan tried to force the words, but his tongue wouldn’t work.
There were sweats and tears running down on Bryan’s face,
an expression of surprise and terror that can’t be erased.
They struggled back and forth, until the murder reached for his weapon
hitting Bryan on the head once, twice… by the third time,
Bryan’s body became unconscious; finally giving up in this fight.
He recalls looking down on Bryan’s cold and lifeless corpse,
admiring how fragile Bryan was, the life that wasn’t there anymore.
He didn’t noticed the shadow passing him by,
he heard footsteps running down the hall, going out the front door.
He should have predicted, that his plans wouldn’t be easy.
He should have been more careful, he should have been more watchful –
whoever might have seen what happened, is on to him.
Stupid, stupid, stupid… kicking himself for his own mistakes.
he should have used poison,
death by poisoning can be mistaken as a natural cause –
accidental overdose or suicide instead of homicide.
Who could have seen? Be rational.
There’s no time to think; he needs to get out of there right away.
