Waiting

Gently he caressed her skin.

Kissed her shoulder.

Squeezed her body with his arms.

~

He’s leaving, taking most everything with him.

He departs with a smile on his face – adventure awaits.

She feels a pull, a sinking feeling between her ribs and lungs.

~

Engines roar, tires turn, then silence.

The home they build, a piece at a time is lifeless.

Stale.

Dormant.
