The Murder in Sixth Street Alley…continued

We lock eyes for a momentary eternity
I am inexplicably swallowed
Falling into bottomless voids
Blinding black madness with no remorse
Waves a disapproving finger
Like a mother implementing discipline
A great tidal wave surges over me
My terror filled eyes disengage lunacy
Incidental voyeur now turned quarry
I have but one option remaining

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
I knew you folks would make me write about killing. Lol. It’s good practice. Psychopathy and mass murder is foreign. As a romantic poet though, I’d kill for love. I’d die for love.
