What Can Brown Do For You?

Ayoub posted a challenge to a community this morning. I'm putting my response here, so that I have it :)

Question: I'll give you two lines, one has to be the firstwords of a piece, and the other has to be the last, you can use the second as the first line and the first as the last if you want, but they must open and close. The challenge is to link them in the most imaginative way...

1: I would never

2: Crush my own heart

"I WOULD NEVER..." she yelled from across the room, as she began to cry.

I stood dumbfounded, staring at my own feet, wondering if I had done the right thing. The sobs coming from her made me want to just leave, and never deal with her again. The other part of me wanted to go to her and tell her I was sorry.

"What are you sorry about, " I asked myself?
"She's sitting there crying, you must be wrong," I answered.
"But you know what you saw!"
"Maybe you need new glasses?"
"Bullshit," I said angrily to myself as I walked over to her, not knowing what I was going to say.

"I... I don't know what to tell you. I saw you with another man, and there is no denying what you were doing with him," I said softly, barely audible over her cries.
"I'm the one who's sorry," I heard coming from her, muffled.
I stood there, shocked. I was right. Part of me was suddenly very proud of myself, while at the same time, I wished I had been wrong.
"I never meant for this to happen," she continued, "it's just that he... I don't know."
I stood silently, wondering, thinking, "what now?"

She got up, grabbed her coat and headed across the room to the door. As she closed the door behind her, I heard her say, "I didn't think I could crush my own heart."
