As she crossed the room,pacing,whatseemed like the hundreth time in the last half hour,wringing her hands,that pained look on her face,pausing for a moment in front of the window ,I heard her sigh.But this sigh was nothing like the others,it was a deeply drawn breath,lung filling sigh.as if her very soul was grieving.Pacing yet again,crossing to the window,pulling aside the curtains,opening the window to allow the damp Autumn breeze into the room.She shuffled the same path over and over again,as I sat quietly in my favorite chair,looking absently at a small spot on the floor.The spot was like a magnet at times.I would try for a moment to drag my eyes away but was compelled to return my gaze to that small area that almost seemed to possess me.Yes,I told myself,that was where in the throes of unbridled pasion we had last taken each other.so long ago it seems now.Ages must have passes since that time,an almost distant memory that I continued to relive in my mind.
I stood up and walked towards her,still gazing out into thie moonlit sky.I gently rested my hands on her shoulders and quietly whispered that she should not put herself through this any longer,that things would turn out alright.But she turned to face me and said that there was no way anything could ever be the same again,not between us,not ever again and that I was wasting her time and mine talking .I saw tears well up in her beautiful blue eyes.I felt a choking sensation deep in my heart as if I was being suffocated by my own emotions.She turned away and buried her face in her hands,sobs racking her small body,the body we both rejoiced in for so long. I walked back to my chair for a moment to collect myself,but decided not to sit down.
Instead I quietly walked up behind her and whispered that words can be more deadly than anything,that the pain that words inflict can blacken ths soul of anyone.
That was when I thrust the knife into her back.feeling the blade hit bone,my hand slipping up the handle and feeling the hasp of the blade slice my hand.This sigh that escaped her lips was not like the countless others,it was as if her soul was dying in that breath.I stood there and held her in a lovers last embrace,her blood splashing like small raindrops on the floor
I let her slip to the floor and waited for what life was left to keave her small body,yes the body we once both rejoiced in.
I knelt down at her side and whispered the same words..those words that she had uttered hours ago,close to her tiny ear.
I dont think I love you anymore.
