Lives Entwined...

Lives Entwined...

A Story by Neetha

Love to death.


“Are you ready?” He asked. His tone was quivery and his eyes were red.

“With you, I always am.” I was confident.

“Then……. Let’s finish it. Together” He suggested, his eyes trying his best to avoid contact with mine.

“Wait…. Wait for a few more seconds.” I paced towards him.

Standing close to him, I felt that my decision was unquestionable.

I was right.

We were right.

He leaned closer and our lips made way for our last kiss.

We had no other choice.

Our hands caught hold of the cups of wine.

The cups of poison.

The cups of Death.

Hands entwined, we took one quick gulp.

Everything went black as we breathed our last in this loveless world.

Author's Note

World is becoming Loveless.
No freedom to live as we desire.
Monopoly of Majority dominates The World.

A sad ending to the poem. When two decide death over life. Must endured a disappointed life. Thank you Neetha for sharing the excellent words and thoughts.

Was my pleasure my friend.
I thought it was another love story... but then, wait, what? double suicide?!

I love poems or stories that are short but never fail to surprise me at the end. Good work!

A good little story, Neetha. I think it would benefit from a bit more brevity. Lose some of the connectives.
"Are you ready?” He asked. His tone quivery, his eyes red."
Third line - “Then……. Let’s finish it. Together” He suggested, his eyes trying their best to avoid contact with mine.
They are small things that do not affect the story itself. Good one.

Thank you so much Ted:)
Glad to read your review:)
Well dear the way you mince such amazing stories I end up searching for more lines to put up my reviews. Here I go- loveless world because people think they have so many number of options. True value of a person with regards to relationship is when both the partners are committed to each other- no cheating, no lying & no extramarital affairs.
