Gun shot

Lively chirpy young couple
Sat hand in hand
Over a cup of steaming hot coffee
Lost in their dreamy love world
Planning for their future
Finding names together
Designing the room with a cot
Thinking about the colour scheme
Will it be “Blue” or “Pink”
Or should they settle for “Yellow”?

Two masked man jumped from the bike
With hateful blood shot eyes
Fired gun shots blindly

With piercing pain
And a direct hole in her heart
She bid farewell
Greying his world altogether
For no fault of theirs
Their dreams shattered in front of his eyes
What will he do with so
Much hatred in world
When will people learn
To Live and to Let live?
