Amethyst Tears~#poetry #AugustWriting #themagicshop

Shattered night

A siren’s scream

The street awakens

Death has shopped in this neighborhood gain

For thirty years he pleased the unardorned

An immigrant’s gift to this new world

His passion to decorate people

A monster’s touch ends his dream

Questions are asked, answered by stares

Witnesses immune to the act

Life has become this, a weekly sacrifice

This evening- the jeweler was chosen.

Sapphires of sadness and Amethyst tears now lie on cement

The beauty of his craft soaked in his blood

And the purest jewel of them all will shine no more
