Hey you guys read and review. I like the ending of this piece. :DAbused Spouse
The table was quiet, the tension thick,
The room was brightly lit.
The counters were shiny, sparkling,
Everything was clean.
The table was set, immaculate,
It was prepared for two.
Everything in order, mirroring
Each other down to the spoon.
The husband sat, on the head
The wife there stood, then by his side
Taste it please? She took a knife
And carved him out a slice.
He nodded, cut, forked, bit and chewed,
Every move precise…
Controlled, that unsmiling mouth
There was no dribble on his chin.
No stain, no grain of fallen food,
No mark on his napkin.
Emotions swirled and sweat dripped down
Unnoticed by the one,
He smiled; she smiled a breath escaped,
Relief! T'was almost done.
She sat down then and offered him a
A little more of wine
He nodded Yes, an assent,
The evening going fine.
One hand slipped, the bottle dipped
And down poured its contents.
An outraged screech, then broken glass,
Then silence… she slapped him.
Hope you liked it:D
