(Aaaand, once again, I forgot to add my post to the link up!)
I missed a week, recovering from my trip to Israel and the March on Washington. Hard to wrap my brain around so many things right now…

Your footsteps echo on the empty street. Even as I hide behind the curtain, the smell of you lingers in this room. I cry out, a silent scream–– please don’t go. But you disappear around the corner and emptiness fills the space.
How did we drift so far, that I didn’t see your empty smiles and vacant eyes?
The cat rubs her back along my leg, and a guttural sob erupts from my constricted chest. Stop! Don’t touch me.
The cold coffee shakes in my cup, and I pour it into the orchid you once nurtured–– both of us abandoned.
