Poems Of Love: Her Purse

She stood there in her most beautiful dress
And her sexiest heels
Tucked behind her ear, her shiny black tress
Glanced at her watch, nervously.

She wanted to think, but not of him
She wanted to do, more than just him
She wanted to live, past their moments
It was time, the sun was dim

Held her purse close,
Like she held his arm at night
Like it was the only thing that made her feel alive
But tonight, she was going to be free, she decided she needed no knight

Toxic, no he wasn’t
But she made him and she couldn’t let go
The best people, we turn them into everyday
And then decide, we want them no more.

Lifted her head and broke into a smile
As she saw him walking towards her, down the aisle.

Held her purse closer and she puffed up her lungs
With a breathe so deep, so she could hold it while everything was getting done.

He was three steps close, two and one
She reached for the purse and slit his throat, done.
