the promise

Writers Island prompt: the promise

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

the clock continued to chime
though life has ceased within
silently the walls murmur
she’s gone, no longer here

paralyzed with grief
unable to speak
her breath caught quick

trapped and unheeding
her life stood frozen
in picturesque motion

pushed backward
by sheer luck
she breathed again

it was the promise
spoken between them
that nearly caught her
in the net of death
