The Assassin

dsc_4265.jpg

Taking careful aim

The assassin marked her target

Aligned the crosshairs

Over her victim’s heart

She thought she knew his weakness

Thought she could not fail

She checked her aim once more

And pulled the trigger

She smiled, self-satisfied

Watched the deadly projectile

Headed straight for his heart

But it was her heart that missed a beat

As his integrity got in the way

And the only thing to die that day

Was the bond between them
