Favorite Quote:
there is no half-singing in the shower. you're either a rock star or an opera diva.

he's gone for now
but he'll be back
he promised

she kissed him goodbye
but she would wait
she promised

seconds to minutes
hours to days
weeks to months
she waited
every day
the same routine:

in the morning
rinse and repeat

at night
she breaks down
crying and sobbing
wishing and longing
feeling lonely
in such a big bed

and the only comfort
he can give
is ghost arms
encircling her
