Six Word Fridays: Truth or…

They stood together holding tight hands
darkness surrounded them, shrouding his secrets
she extends him unchecked trust (whispering:
“Dare I offer my heart’s confidence?”)
a question asked under starless sky
a gentle squeeze was his reply

“I love you”
he told her
more with fists than soft words
kisses left in blue black etchings
his escalating adoration confirmed in each
and she, Covergirl, hides the memories
creating in foundation perfection’s greatest lie

After each nightmare, returns a gentle dream
“Never again,” he whispers, breath brushing
She flinches at danger’s close proximity – –
too afraid to seek her freedom,
alone she cowers in unsafe home – –
forever seems a terrible burden now
and death, a lover’s last gift
But she’s no use for presents
“Never again” she echoes his words:
mourning truths. She dares to leave.

Note: a work in progress… something’s missing, incomplete…
