Fandango’s One-Word Challenge: TAKEN
Under a dark sky
wrapped in a blanket of shadows
and warm soft earth
is a someone’s secret.
The Secret has a name.
He was 24 years old.
He will always be 24 years old.
Marty is missed by a dog name Fin.
Fin still waits for him at the end of the drive
where they used to live
before Marty was taken, eight months ago.
Fin thinks Marty will come back one day.
I think Fin is right.
Ghosts may wander aimlessly
but the taken always find their way back,
even when their eyes have been cruelly and without mercy closed.
