Couldn’t find the muse last week; this week the muse found me. Thanks to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for her weekly patience and work, and for the wonderful photo by Valerie J. Barrett. I welcome honest, constructive feedback; please take a moment and share your thoughts.
When It All Falls Apart
Standing in the kitchen Ella’s face flushed, as Sam explained for the second time why he needed space. Why she wasn’t good enough.
“I wish we could iron out our differences, but I think we’ve just grown apart.”
The kettle whistled an alarm, as Ella slammed her hand on the counter. She ignored the pain that shot up her arm.
“We haven’t grown apart; you stopped trying months ago, Sam!”
“What do you want me to say?” He groaned.
“I can’t spoon feed you answers anymore, if you don’t even love me.”
Ella took a deep breathe, and let go.
