One Word

“Do you still love me?” she asked 

with tears welling up in her brown eyes 

that once shined in the daylight 

her heart was aching for an answer 

she could feel the butterflies in her stomach 

not the beautiful monarch butterflies

but more so ones that flutter around the sickening 

feeling of heartbreak 

she knows what is coming 

it is just a matter of a few moments 

and one word to leave his lips 

that once touched hers 

she thought how could this pain come from just one word 

“no” he replied.
