Paul Bell

The Final Goodbye

She watched him sleeping, wondering

When did she stop loving him

Was it gradual

Did she ever love him

Could she love another

Her mind was made up

She would leave tomorrow

He watched her sleeping, wondering

Placing the pillow over her face

Did he ever love her.

    A love turned hatred
    Yet they wonder
    Maybe a spur of moment may make them loose themselves forever
    Stories like this plague the newspaper
    But what goes behind the broken pieces of a rose that bloomed one night
    Well penned dear Paul
    Broken relationships witnessing a fall

      Yes, one never knows what goes on behind closed doors.

      A haunt of a read Paul when lines get crossed and what a surprise your final line was - - very relatable to some who have come to abhor living together. Great stuff and suddenly reminded me of couples I know who would half-fit fit the bill

      • Paul Bell

        I think a lot of couples would gladly kill each other, just out of boredom.

        It's really hard not to feel the emotion in here Paul that twist at the end gave shivers down my spine. Bloomin brilliant, you really need to start thinking about a dark novel my friend. 💖

        • Paul Bell

          Thinking of writing a novel called, Procrastination, which sums me up. lol

            There's a song that goes something like this
            letting go is hard to do 🤣

            Well that turned dark pretty dang fast. I get the image of "If I can't have her, then no one can."

            A sinister read to turn the brain cogs. Two thumbs up.

            • Paul Bell

              Think that sums him up.

              Chilling read Paul, but possibly very true in the minds of some.

                It happens for sure.
