She just sat there, frustration washing over her like a waterfall Pulling out some old feelings she was having trouble coping with She could hear his heavy breathing, was it anger, or was it tears He would not talk to her, his words of explanation could not come Looking over at him she could now see the fire growing in his eyes
So close they sat to each other, yet they were again, worlds apart She could see clearly now how his arms, his body began to shake It was almost as if this person she had come to love ever so dearly Had turned now into an unthinking, untamed, uncontrollable monster But, as hard as it was to her, she remained strong, she just had to This could not go on any longer, It has to stop, here and now, no more
Oh he had controlled her in subtle ways, playing hard on her emotions Twisting them when ever he could to get his way with her one more time Since she did love him, she had let him get away with it from the start But this was it. If she gave in now would she ever have the courage again He looked up at her, trying one more time to bend her heart to his will
She sighed a heavy sigh, one of total and complete surrender to her cause And with her best voice, showing she was the one in control this time Taking a deep breath she looked him straight in the eyes and said...NO.
Absolutely not........you can not get down from the table until you finish all of your peas young man, then, maybe, you can have desert.
