Punish Me with Your Eyes

He stared at me with his piercing eyes, daring me to lie.

Softly, I said, “I’m sorry.  I didn’t realize what it meant to you.  That mistake will never happen again.  Punish me as you will.”  My eyes blurred with unshed tears as I heard him let out a deep sigh.

He took my hand and pulled me down to him.  His lips barely brushed mine as he said, “I will have forever to punish you.  You are mine.”
