Domestic Violence violence anger passion love

Passionate Crime

It was a crime of passion

Executed in the strangest of fashions

15 knife strikes to the soul

And the man achieved his goal

His wife would no longer be sleeping around

Because now she rests 6 feet below the ground

He sits in shock staring at the wall of his cell

And below him open the gates of hell.

 

And as the lifeblood flows out

And she screams and shouts

His face is a picture of ecstasy

Because he has finally set her free

 

A kind of madness bought about by love

When the push has really become the shove

When there is no longer a chance or a choice

He feels he must scream out with a breaking voice

And tears that stream down his face

Because his wife has just left the rat race

And he is stuck in this world with nothing left

But a criminal record and a hideous debt

 

And as the lifeblood flows out

And she screams and shouts

His face is a picture of ecstasy

Because he has finally set her free
