Beyond Me...

Beyond Me...

A Story by Neetha
"

Gone too far!

"

I am gonna kill you!”

He snarled.

But I didn’t care.

It’s what Lovers say.

When they get pissed off.

 

“Uh- huh? Kill me then!”

I retorted back.

I expected it to be a rhetorical challenge.

He won’t have the guts to do it.

He loves me!

 

The next moment a gory knife ripped apart my Heart.

I saw his bloody eyes staring into my lifeless ones.

 

A rhetoric gone too far.

Beyond my reach.

Beyond me.

Just a random story.
Also rhetoric isn't always good!

A deadly ending to the poetry dear Neetha. I liked this poem. Sometimes we need to pay attention to the words of another. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

very sad and hurtful, I enjoy the emotion in this

A short story, Neetha. There is an opportunity here to tighten the tension.
Example:
“Uh- huh? Kill me then!” I retorted back.
“Kill me then!” I retorted.

A rhetoric gone too far

rhetoric gone too far

Quite often connectives (but, and, too) get in the way.

All in all, not bad
