This poem is titled IDLY BY. It is one of the themes of the novel APRIL RAiN. All words are written and property of AM GROUT. (excuse the layout for this website only offers one kind for these entries.) Time has not passed long here. I've waited to feed your soul. But peace came with a price. I didn't plan to sit idly by.

The attack was sudden and unprovoked. The attack was extreme, especially to me. I wanted to fight, I wanted to run. I tried to live but I had to die. A blue could lifted me to an angelic place. Comfort and cures were all over the place. The memory makes me mad. The truth makes me cringe. He could have stopped. He should have confessed. He could have died, but he feared his fate.
