Just Another Love Story
“Give me a reason not to.” she said.
She was sitting there on the bed with a knife pressed against her wrist. She was pressing hard too, he could see the blood beginning to trickle out from under the blade. He looked at her tear stained faced, her eyeliner running down her cheeks, her hair looked like she hadn’t brushed it in three days. She was the most beautiful thing he had ever seen.
He looked right into her stunning eyes which still shined bright, despite being red from tears that no longer seemed to be able to fall. He placed his hand gently around her hand that was holding the blade. “Because I love you baby”.
Two fresh tears fell down her cheeks and she loosened her grip on the blade. He took it gently from her hand and kissed her soft skin where the blade had just been.
