He kept screaming my name for hours on end. “Save me, my love.” I can still hear him tonight.
Four holes inside his chest exposed his beating heart, as he swam in the pool of his own blood like a fish with lungs. His eyes seeped into my soul while I stood there like a mannequin. I couldn’t save him; my hands were tied.
He looked at me as if it were my fault and I couldn’t argue to prove him wrong. I could’ve saved him, but my hands were tied. They were too busy scrubbing the knife.
