From her Louis Vuitton knock-off,
the wife pulled a gun,
she fired three shots
and popped Cherry with one.

She was hit in the heart
and she bled Unchained Melody
and scarlet love letters spilled
onto the floor.

Her vision was fading,
she knew she was dying,
and as she was falling
he ran to catch her
before she fell to the floor.

Cherry smiled, she had won.
This was all she had wanted,
to be in his arms
at the fade to black.

When all the pages were read
and the last word was said,
this was all she had wanted,
to be in his arms at The End
of her fairy tale.
A Statutory Fairy Tale

And she bled unchained melody . . . Nice. Dark imagery with a dash of a tragic tale of a girl's poetic death. Fine poem.

Wow, this was really surreal! It took me back to old feelings I've abandoned for dead, and I especially loved the line "And scarlet love letters spilled onto the floor"! What epic imagery :tighthug:
This piece's best aspect, I think, is that it engages my mind's eye... awesome! ^o^

I like being able to see things in my minds eye as I read as well. I love imagery in poems, so I like to write them that way, and I'm glad it worked out in this one. :)

Thanks for letting me know! :hug:
(one I did recently with that imagery aspect is "Love, On The Rocks". I think you might like that one)

Ok, yeah...I thought "What is she up to?" when I clicked on this. Darn you, you fooled me and I'm thrilled about it! Ha, this is so original and interesting. And the words, they all fit so well...it was like it rhymed all the way through even though it didn't.

AWESOME!!

You're so sly B-) but so am I :blowkiss:

Thanks so much! I enjoyed working on this one. My mom thought that the line "She fired three shots and popped Cherry with one" was hysterical! And I thought it was hysterical that she thought it was hysterical because I thought she was going to think it was crass or something. :)

Speaking of titles, this one led me to believe it would be about something quite other than the content! You little rascal you!

Well the poem is about a young girl named Cherry who is the mistress of a married man and the title comes from the lines where the angry wife takes a gun and shoots Cherry in the heart.
You were the one who had to go and make it dirty. For shame!

Oh! So you'll understand that my upcoming short story "Jumped Her Bones" is really about a guy who's loved one died and he was afraid to visit her grave because of what the loss signified to him and he made a personal vow to take finally go to the cemetery and taking a running leap over her burial place to prove to both her memory and himself that he could move on with his life? ;)
