Day 13: The Empty Glass

Tonight, we would have a fancy dinner,
Taking turns cooking in the kitchen
Laughing over spices.
It would not be just-right without dessert,
Scooping vanilla, peanut butter, and chocolate chips
Talking about world-issues
Ending up with a movie not-yet-seen
Planted in front of the tv
Cuddling over drama

But all of that just disappeared…
As soon as I saw the empty glass.

One thought on “Day 13: The Empty Glass

  1. This is such a raw and real slice. It puts me right back into those feelings I experienced in a not-good relationship situation long ago. It changed the course of my life for the better to leave that situation. I had begun to feel like a non-entity. Powerful writing, difficult topic. Sending you strength and hope for better days.
