she’d always Been the girl with a smile on her face and a light spring to her steps. She fairly glided and wherever she went she was a breath of fresh air and a ray of sunshine. She met him and uttered her first words. Words he taught her when he first said them.
3 words to open her eyes
3 words to open her heart
3 words to melt her
3 words to turn her world upside down
3 words she’d keep saying never to be uttered from his lips.
Her blue skies are replaced with dark, stormy nights, her glide to stubbed toes.
Her once summer yellow dress has turned grey.
She gazes at him hoping he sees her, desperate for just one look.
One look to touch her skin, one look to save her.
Her blood seeps out her pores panting those 3 words.
She lays on the cold, hard floor, empty and alone, seeking just 3 words.
Thump! Thump!! Thump!!! To the sound of her last 3 words
Thump!!! Thump!! Thump!… her last 3 beats
She smiles as the darkness consumes her. His look the last thing she sees as he utters his 3 words.
Finally he sees her but never to be seen by her.
