I am back to writing! Woohoo! “You’re Gone” was written for Carrot Ranch for a very cool prompt. If you’d like to have a go, click here. Thanks, Charli and Susan Sleggs for this wonderfully innovative prompt!
16:00 You’re Gone
A thousand voices echo. Reprimands. Insecurity.
I’ve lost it all.
I got drunk, flirted, danced, hugged, and kissed a girl. Not you. When I kissed her, I made believe she was you.
The walls have eyes and voices that repeated events to you.
“It’s over,” you said.
“I’m sorry. What can I do?”
Those last four words I repeated over to you for days until finally, you acquiesced. “Meet me at our bench at 4.”
I brought your favorite pink roses. They smelled like heaven, like you.
After three hours, I tossed the roses into the bin.
