Frozen

"I will not come back, Owen.

When I disappear

I will not return. Ever."

A tear brushed her eyelashes

As she recited these words,

Hiding her pain.

I did not cry,

Though a strong lump

Appeared in my throat,

Choking me.

"Don't go,"

I croaked.

She shook her head.

"I have to, Owen."

I could barely hear her now.

She turned,

But I knew

If I stood

Frozen

I would never see 

The love of my life

Again. I grabbed her hand

And choked, "I love you."

She turned to me

And whispered,

"I love you too, Owen."

I watched as my heart

Cracked in two and

She disappeared.

The End
