xxix. she said I do

          the gasp of shock
          turned into the giggles of tears
 and while the raven flew upstairs without a word
 she wondered if she had made a mistake –

I guess it’s meant to be
          her naked form knelt before her
 and she opened the velvet box in her hands
there is no life without death,
 all things have a cycle,
 but we could be forever …?

          there’s an old slogan
          that had never wrung true
 until she had become more human than skeleton
 and she kissed her with all she could say

you better believe we do

Prompt: Double
