In Response to Austin Briggs March Prompt ~ The Unseen Heart ~

A photograph of a
handsome boy,

‘You will marry this man’

She was just ten, she accepted, loved.

The elders decide, ‘it’s time’
‘No cousin marriage,’ he said.
Her heart beat no more…

A surgeon, he cut, he saw

his name in blood, knew not his ailing dying love

He was never shown a photograph.
