Miss Interpretation

“I love you so much,” he said
“you are my rock”

as she thought

you are my rock too
the rock tied to my feet
pulling me
to the bottom of life’s ocean
taking in water with every p a s s i n g day
immersed in disappointment
asphyxiated with regret

the realization of wasted years
caused rivulets of despair and hopelessness

as he thought

she really does love me

– Anthony Dirk Ray
