fifteen

1. Because I was still in uniform and the unbearable gray was seeping into my soul.

2. You said things that made me smile when I didn’t smile much.

3. Or maybe I did but I didn’t feel it.

4. You called me beautiful.

5. Then tucked me in and left.

6. I did.

7.I always ascribe the leaving to someone else.

8.I spent a week aching at a distance.

9. It was good practice.Survival skill.
