his hands balled into fists.
I knew that it would be the last time I'd see him,
but I couldn't say a word to stop him.
I had loved him completely.
I'd loved him with all that was in me.
For the first time in my life
I'd let all my defenses fall...or so I had thought.
Because on that day when he asked,
on that day that he promised,
I said no
and I watched him walk away.
His sigh echoed my heartbreaking.
His clenched fists mirrored my distress.
But I couldn't say a word to stop him.
My fear had set him free.
