With all the things she left behind, this little piece of paper hurt me the most.
She is a writer, a journalist by profession, a novelist by passion. Maybe that’s what I loved about her. I am not as good with words as she is. For me, her eloquence is sexiness at its best.
We’re opposites, I would admit that. And this little piece of crumpled paper revealed it just seconds before she finally left me, for good.
I love coffee, he likes tea.
I have no choice, but drink with fake glee.
I read books, he play video games.
I have no choice, but play with him.
Words melt my heart,
but kisses is what he wants.
I long for letters,
but he gave me flowers.
I wait for him to see.
What would really make me happy.
Though, I don’t like to wait.
That’s actually what I hate.
But I do it,
for him. So be it.
