Plotting the demise of the perfect girl,
a deceitful marriage devoid of mercy.
A hammer and a nail into the chest of my radiant pearl,
I love the taste of this menacing controversy.
Monster! She screamed,
her corpse writhing beneath me.
In a fit of blind fury I pierced her heart,
deep down, I wanted this from the start.
How thrilling to demolish a perfect romance,
the kill feels best when struck by the hands of love.
I would do it again if given the chance,
my blade cascading on her heart from above.
The ultimate taboo, a love built upon hatred,
I lived for the day I could see her torn and devastated.
Trapped in my rage, she was my beautiful little dove,
I delightfully reminisced about the night I murdered my love.
