I Love You
" Will you marry me?"
When I heard those words I couldn't believe it.
All throughout high school I had secretly loved him.
At the ending ceremony of our graduation he asked me that.
I remember it. I remember that day clearly. The cherry blossoms were swirling through the air.
A whirlwind of pink snow.
That was the most beautiful day of my life.
" Yes," I replied.
Deep inside I knew that he didn't love me.
He didn't know me.
He only wanted me for my money and yet...
I said yes.
I loved him so much, even if he didn't love me.
Even if it was only my money.
I knew, yet my heart still aches.
Even when I was married to him, only at the age of 19,
even when he was cheating on me with another woman
I didn't care.
Because I loved him.
I tried to make him happy.
In the end he asked me to divorce him.
I said yes, if only he'd go on a date with me.
Our first and last.
Yet, when he saw the woman he was cheating with
he left me to chase her.
I chased him.
Today, if only today, please see only me.
Crossing the street, yelling for him to wait
I grab onto his arm.
With the coldness of a stranger
he pushed me away.
and a truck hit me.
As I lay there dying
he came back.
Tears fill my eyes
my heart breaking into a million pieces.
The light is quickly fading.
I reach for him.
All this time I never got to tell him.
I try to speak to say the unspoken words.
His face fades into darkness.
give me a chance to tell him...
" I love you."
A short sad oneshot.
