Life Away From Knife


I’ve never been afraid of the dark
I’ve never been afraid of strangers
That night I can only hear dog barks
Nothing else more than wind’s whisper

A man from behind suddenly appear
Unknowingly he has a hidden spear
He called on me so softly
As I approach him so gently

An inexpungible experience of my life
As he grab my arms with force
That fatal moment, I started to lose
While he holds me he pointed a knife

A sudden decision has to be done
For a treasure or a life to gone
I never regret of having that choice
Now that you can still hear my voice

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
