He stood next to her

Holding her hand

She was shaking

He could feel her

Speedy pulses

Quake in her palm

Sweat dripped

From her brow

Nearer the edge

Their feet traveled

Her feet slower

More hesitant

She didn’t understand

But he would help her

She needed to know

How he truly felt

If he couldn’t have her

Then nobody could

He wanted to fly

Just once

With the woman

That he loved

He would, of course

Remove the tape

From her lips

He would kiss her

Just once

Before they leaped

And he just knew

They would both

Die happy

      I have had the idea of trust (and how scary it is) in my head.


  1. It was in the bath tub it would happen. She would invite him in, with scented roses and bubble bath. The film of gasoline floating just below. He would say yes to her and dry off and they will make love. He would say no to her and she would light the match and hold him while they burn.
    He strips and sinks into the water.
    She brings the matches close to her-to light the candle
    Will you marry me?
