GUFN-Forever

When I decided to leave, I didn't think you would take it so hard.

“You're trapping me,” I said. And those were the words that killed him. The words that came together and made their own decisions for him.

Whether to cry...
Whether to apologize...
Whether to feel...
Whether to understand that I was GUFN- Gone until further notice.

It snowed the next day. I woke up with a stiff neck, frozen toes, and swollen eyes.
Eyes, that too, had been crying, Eyes that were held only for him.

“I don't understand” he exclaimed, and I replied “you'll get it”
As the door slowly, silently, closed behind me...

I was GUFN- gone until further notice
