SpringforOrchid.

He bagged the final handful of tears that two towering Oaks’ wept and headed laden-faced, Her way.
She knelt pruning a flowerbed, Hair of silvered-gray glistening in Octobers late-afternoon sun.
He pressed His lips to Her forehead in a crawling kiss and His hand gently slid across Her chin as He moved to walk away.
She watched Him disappear into the house as Autumn’s velvet air caressed Her skin and brushed Her spine.
She soon entered the home and sat at His side as Sparrow serenaded.
She locked Her gaze and onto what reflected the luminosity of the Days’ dying Sun.
Said-She: “I love you with every ounce of my being, always I have with never a doubt.”
She smiled in a glowing of peace that she’s never really known as he placed the “Peace” to Her skull.
…He searched Her eyes for amnesty.
With creased lips, and tongue scroring the roof of Her mouth and She said the word that sent in-motion…“Release”.
…“n…o…w…!”
N…O…W… reverberated his skull as She fell to the floor convulsing, eyes rolling.
N O W!
He could only watch and wait in-hope that peace for Her came quick.
As Scarlet stream sheathed silvered-grey…And Scarlet stream sheathed silvered-grey as those eyes, gorgeous as the moment He first-them-gazed, stared…lifeless.

He knelt beside Her and placed that ‘Gorgeous Redeemer’ to his temple and sighed inside.
“I Love You" He said aloud as He summoned the lead that would extinguish the pain.
but the trigger would not budge
Quickly He lifted Her body and carried it to their car for the peak of a gorge that would become the new ‘Enamcipator’.
As he placed Her onto the seat of their car, Police cruisers surrounded like ghouls.
…just
…like
…ghouls.
And before He could devise a plan to excise what was materializing around Him, -those ghouls broke the grasp that He had of Her hand…And those ghouls heaved Him from Her side…And He pleaded to those ghouls for amnesty…And He pleaded to those eyes, those heavenly eyes…And those eyes stared through him, right through…Lifeless…Peaceful.

Artist's Description

A love story.

(I’ve taken this down, re-wrote it and re-posted it once before. I’m constantly editing and re-wording it. …I just can’t seem to get it ‘right’.
Thus, my never satisfied mind.)
