The Woman Of Offord

One after the other
they finally killed her.

Excuses were varied
from lover to lover
as rumor abounded
then over and over
discarded, rejected
abandoned, deserted
scant feeling well hidden
to madness was driven
ensnared by the users
yet, ever the loser:

Hour once valued by he
blame blind, harder to see.

A failure to discern
all those heart withered men
time again and again
hollow, gut wrenching pain
error causes a glut
of bitterness drank much
multiplied and increased;
When and how did faith cease?
Effectively a whore
praying hands asking more
then broken trust, heart tore
with little to hope for:

One after the other
men finally killed her.
