The Back Side of Love
He showed up, wanting to have sex. He said I was his wife and he had the right to be with me, I refused. Then he pushed and shoved me. After a while I was pushing and shoving too, trying to get him off of me. Trapped behind his fist, I tried to run past him. I could not get by. The gun gave me the courage to run into him. I did not think it would go off, but it did. I was too afraid to look back.
