going-away present [Jun. 3rd, 2006|08:09 pm]
he asked her
as the sun was setting over the ocean
if there was anything she wanted

in her mind, a Pandora's box of hope opened
and tender green threads of joy blossomed
reaching for the elusive blue sky
which was contained within
his soulful eyes

and she
became aware of some forgotten part of her
standing in the deluge of his words
hands straining towards the heavens,
eyes locked shut in deference to the dream
of his smile

maybe she should have
taken heed of the roaring in her eyes and not
the way the waves lapped up onto the shore
like the quintessential romance movie,

maybe she should have
remembered the way his eyes followed the curve
of that other girl's hips
and not the way he smiled as she
brushed against his arm

but instead, she opened her mouth
and out came the evidence of her betrayal:
I want to
fall back into the arms of your love

he looked at her
with a deep sadness stirring in his eyes
and said:
that is the one thing
which I cannot give.

and in that moment
she knew what she'd done
and what she must do.

later that night,
she returned to that place
and walked forward into the flood of her emotion,
glad to watch the light slowly slide away
taking her breath and her torment with.
