She was fierce.
walked about with confidence of a possessed
like she wore a fire fence over her head.
I stared deep into her eyes
they were blank.
she walked out and returned with him
the man who broke her heart.
the man she loved most
she wasnt willing to give him up.
They sat down to tea
and for the first time in a month she spoke
If I can’t have you, neither will she
he stared blankly at her
like he was searching for something
like he had kept something hidden in her chest
she drew in for a hug
“baby this is home”
he stood still and for the first time
I saw his tears.
I wasnt sure which they were, joy or hurt?
he still didn’t move.
as soon as she let go
he ran off, like he had seen a ghost
and when he stopped, he fell on his knees
and let out a very loud scream
its then that I knew,
they hurt each other so bad.
he wasnt sure it could be mended
he had grown so weak,
he didn’t know how to start over
she slowly took her seat
murmured a prayer
and got up.
she walked home in silence
the rains fell,but she didn’t feel them
I tried to pull her away into a shelter
Its been another month and she hasn’t said a word.
I havent heard from him either
all she does is wake up and stare in silence.
apart of her died
apart of her left
apart of her is burried.
