The silent stranger watching in the crowd—

there one moment and gone the next

A shadowy figure outside her window—

there one moment and gone the next

The stealthy footfall of sockless feet—

there one moment and gone the next

A faint grating of the squeaky stairs—

there one moment and gone the next

The hurried rattling of her bedroom door—

there one moment and gone the next

A flickering light from the lampshade by her side—

there one moment and gone the next

The glint of the blade in a dimly lit room—

there one moment and gone the next

A soft knife’s song as he stabs her by the heart—

there one moment and gone the next

The piercing scream that breaks the silence—

there one moment and gone the next

A muffled thud of a lifeless falling body—

there one moment and gone the next

~~~

The silent stranger watching in the crowd—

there one moment and gone the next.
