Killer Thoughts

 Life bleeds out
a river of red
heartbeat silenced
demons fed

From cold darkness
the killer came
knife blade sharpened
soul black-stained

Heart unhampered
by mercy's grace,
he took the life
that filled her face
He watched it drain
with loving eyes,
this essence
that he so despised

As drop-by-drop
it touched the floor, 
his anger calmed,
his thirst no more
Her body lay
in peaceful pose
as he placed
a single rose

Filled with content,
his hunger tamed,
he crept away
to hunt fresh game
