Who shall explain
devastating tragedy
imprisoned in death
never to be free

Demons do creep
there is no misgiving
venomous strikes
attacking the living

Spectres of regret
carve images in the mind
casting ominous shadows
calamity assigned

Heart wrenching fate
brutal and unfair
it comes for us all
innocents beware

Author's Note
A dear friend who survived alcoholism and cancer died tragically in a car accident. I don't understand the unfairness. Such a loss.
