A sound escapes her lips, a whisper into the darkness
She tries to lift her head in vain, causing her excruciating pain
Agonising black is all she can see, I wish that she could look at me
To feel her eyes upon my face, as I move towards her with such grace
A fingertip across her cheek, she flinches now and tries to speak
I cradle her into my arms, I feel her shake with such alarm
I do not know why she fights me so, as I finish her with just one blow.
