Yes, I Do

Words are hurled, accusations rained, splattering each other with insinuations and staining prides. Our volumes increase with the quarrel’s intensity.

The merciless torrent floods our eyes with tears, fills our heart with a heaviness that chokes. We know where this is going; maybe we have known it for some time. We’d seen the clouds gathering, felt the first drops stinging us. We had foolishly believed we could weather out the storm.

“It’s over!” she thunders finally.

Despite being drenched in defeat, the words spill out. “You don’t really mean that, do you?”

Her eyes are steady, firm.

“Yes, I do.”

  2. Powerful, love that! I like the somewhat tricky title too. It sounds like it will be about marriage, and then it's the opposite. Very clever.
