The Pendant

 

Did he really believe it would buy my silence?

He hung the pendant round my neck,

a bit like a piece of rope.

I never considered that at the time though,

a way to choke back the words

should I decide to speak.

I guess the worst thing, the final straw, was that

the stone that dangled from the chain

didn’t even match my eyes.

But you know what?

It matched hers,

perfectly.
