That Moment

He opened the black velvet box.
The glittering diamond blinds her.
He asks.
The question!
That question…

And there’s a moment.
She hesitates.

That moment.
Fear swallows them both.
It is Jonah’s whale!
And they are caught in the belly.

Yes or no.
Maybe so.
Should I stay?
Should I go?

I would love
to be your charming wife…
and then…

Dear God no.
No.
No, no no.
No.
I cannot bear this a moment longer.

And all her emotions
scream from her eyes!

In that moment,
that unspeakable moment,
she has no words.

She must reply.
