On The Stairway

Mom sitting in her rocking chair,
Hears a sound upon the stairs.

She sees a shadow holding another.
She is witnessing a brutal murder.

Screams of help from a voice
Who tries to fight, but has no choice.

A piercing cry within her ear,
She tries to believe she cannot hear.

Soon there’s silence, a drop on the floor.
The fighting stopped. There is no more.
