disturbing deuce

thomg’s three word wednesday this week’s offer: gesture, immediate, treasure

turning back around he wanted some gesture
something immediate that would cause
a sting she would never forget

opening a valve his heart exploded
smudging her soft hard trembling lips
abruptly destroying their last link

he watched in sorrow satisfaction
as her face unexpectedly unraveled
regret glistening, water dripping

her body falling carelessly
he now had a treasure he could keep
