Quicksilver: A Poem

Quicksilver

A quick moment,
Like the blink
Of an eye

His slings
And arrows
Barely missed
Her good
Intentions

She never
Knew,
She never
Saw his
Face

A quick moment,
A lost second
Frozen in
The shadows
Of her broken
Mind.

This one is so deep.

She never saw it coming.

Great write.
