PUSHED

Posted: February 8, 2013 in Uncategorized

Standing

side by side,

on the cliff’s

formidable edge,

the man pointed

to  the canyon’s ravine

which lie –

thousands of miles

down –

to the bottom.

It was not a sight seeing gesture

no

but rather

a heedful warning.

He told her the words,

“If you ever

Ever

try to leave me…”

She stood silent,

as usual,

but as unusual

she began to have thoughts

thinking

of  all the…

apologetic bruises,

her  sleepless nights,

the shift in people’s eyes

when their engagement had been announced.

Thinking

of all the…

warnings

from others,

friends,

family

and how she was just sure,

they did not understand

Thinking

of all the…

“never again” lies

her guilt of causing such things

She gazed at her gold band gauntlet

cuffed

to her left ring finger,

then glanced, looking, examining

his face

which scowled as if fighting with the air.

“Til death

do we part?”  She questioned,

observing his response.

He nodded,

YES,

She sighted

began to head back to the car

when then

she stopped a few steps in

thinking

of

what if?

what if she?

He made not a move

noticing nothing

and from somewhere

which seemed

from out of nowhere

she suddenly turned

charged

running towards him.

and then

just as he  turned around,

she rammed his body –

feet flew

from underneath him

as he desperately grasped for clumps of air

to pull him back

and in the moment upon knowing his fate

his face

pasty pale

with  eyes bulged

as if trying to escape from their sockets

and backwards

he fell

over

off the cliff,

Thunk

Thunk

Thudunk.

Hesitant,

she looked over the edge

where his body lay

mangled

motionless.

Her lips celebrated with a smile

then declared:

“Well my dear,

I now pronounce us…

de-parted.”
