TRICK OF THE LIGHT
(8/9/13)


the night
portended
nothing
special

but there
you were

I had
only
indoor fluorescents
to guide
me

I thought
that I saw
love
in your
eyes

your words
and actions
convinced me
so

years
later
I'm not
so sure

there is still
something reflected
in those darkened
irises

those pupils
so black

maybe
it's love
after all

love
of the
kill
