Dowry of Pain

‘Socialite murdered!’
‘Husband Charged!’
‘Who will take the children now?’
One lone tear
trembles on lash
only sign of grief
whatever happened to that boy
the one I loved
all those years ago?
together forever
we promised
laying in the back of your truck
night sky
alit with burning stars.
Holding hands
your thumb tracing palm
frissons of desire licking at my soul
where we would go
what we would do
all that we could be.
All that we would be.
Crept up slowly
fingers digging in
leaving prints
seem to excite you
promising anything
to be left alone.
It ended 
with not a bang
with a slap
rocking my head
world suddenly moving
doing nothing 
smiled at a friend.
Snarling rage.
You may have killed me
No denying
you wanted to.
puce face
spittle flying
I cowered before you
knowing one last blow
would be the end .
Your body 
hitting ground hard
timely intervention
guardian angel at hand.
There is no charging 
white rich boy.
I ran.
Coward that I was.
For that 
another innocent
three innocents
paid my bride price.
