He caught her off guard

A proposal no less

An invitation to breakfast was supposed to break the fast endured during the night

Not be a proclamation of love

The forging of two paths into one

The answer should’ve been easy

There was only two

Not like those SAT questions with A, B, C, D

And sometimes E

Just yes or no

Yes, I vow to love and honor you no matter what obstacle barrels my way

Standing by you until my dying day


No, how asinine do you think I am. I sang Independent Woman louder than Beyoncé, Kelly, and Michelle combined.

There’s no way I’m going to tie my life’s success to the choices, opinions, and decisions of another living soul.

Love is a dangerous virus that infected her heart

Which made it wage war with her brain

Rendering her speechless.
