a broken engagement...

A promise incomplete

the rhythmic clunk of longcase clock

the rhythmic clunk of longcase clock invades the dim-lit room

the rhythmic clunk of longcase clock invades the dim-lit room each swinging motion of the bob

the rhythmic clunk of longcase clock invades the dim-lit room each swinging motion of the bob now slaps her in the gloom

the smell of unmasked mildew growth

the smell of unmasked mildew growth infects her running nose

the smell of unmasked mildew growth infects her running nose and down her face mascara leaks

the smell of unmasked mildew growth infects her running nose and down her face mascara leaks to stain her simple clothes

the vase lies empty by her side

the vase lies empty by her side a promise incomplete

the vase lies empty by her side a promise incomplete the flowers of apology

the vase lies empty by her side a promise incomplete the flowers of apology in absence indiscreet

with shaking hands she makes a choice

with shaking hands she makes a choice as pain deploys its sting

with shaking hands she makes a choice as pain deploys its sting and to the floor she throws with force

with shaking hands she makes a choice as pain deploys its sting and to the floor she throws with force her precious diamond ring
