By The Well

To the well he came,
My life to take,
To the well I went,
My life’s mistake.

Dagger drawn,
Vengeance, scorn,
Fragile, lorn,
Innocent pawn.

At the well I screamed,
Silent, still,
To the well they turned,
Frozen, chill.

At daggers drawn,
Seconds fly,
Before the fall,
One last sigh.

To the well they came,
Year after year,
By the well I stayed,
Shadows, tears.
