Mother’s Words

He grabbed her by the throat
Pushed her against the wall
Out of breath she ran
He put his lips on hers
She kissed him like it was her last
Then he pulled a knife
And drove it into her heart
As she breathed her last
Her mother’s words echoed in her mind
“He will be the death of you”
Nine months later
She had a baby
And he was in his grave.
