Cruel smile

Careful, they told him as he mentioned forever

Red flags were seen before by others.

Understanding concern from friends and family

Enchanted by looks and sweet talk

Lulled into her web of lies, he does what he wants.

 

She grabs the box with a shaking hand.

Moved, she smiles and wonders which ring he bought.

In seconds, the carefully wrapped box is open

Leaving her stunned as if touched by a cattle prod.

Enraged she throws it back at him.
