A Crime of Passion ~ RFW ~ Driven to Murder


I have been spring cleaning, now that the sunshine has FINALLY returned and the viruses are gone. Whilst ironing, I came up with my own belated and rather off-the-cuff entry for RFW's March Madness challenge, in the form of a POEM that fits the theme: Driven to Murder.
Since Romance has its primary focus on the relationship and romantic love between two people with an emotionally satisfying and optimistic ending, I felt uncomfortable about writing a prose romance piece that had the sensual mixed with violence. So, instead, I chose a more direct approach in the form of this poem.
