Sweeping through the dark
Not making a sound
He rides through the city
Spotting his nex victums house
Into a house he crept
Children tucked in thier bungalows
Wife and Husband sound asleep
Grabbing prcious jewels
Acandle he knocked over
Bang,Bang,Boom there goes his head!

Very creative, but the ending kind of left me hanging as to what happened.

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when their right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust noone but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."
— Marilyn Monroe

I liked this poem, I just don't get the last line.
