Thursday table cost

His business suit,
A little crumpled.
What with day's deadlines?
Still on time.
For an early dinner
And
The ring.
All nerves.
And all butterflies.
But she walked in,
Hand-in-hand,
With black coat and black tie.
Thursday table cost?
A broken heart.

  1. A thud in the stomach and a cracking of the heart moment to be certain. Liked the way you built the storyline, Ruby.
