IGWRT's Sunday Challenge "The Declaration"

The Declaration

A pink promise he placed
in the palm of her hand

declared,

"Beauty fades
but my love for you
never will".

"Eeyou!" she wailed

and crushed it
under her Sketchers.

Ten years later
she asked him to prom
placed pink lipstick
upon his cheek

implored,

"Please don't say eeyou."

The thought never crossed his mind.
