With every sunrise it got harder to remember the exact moment she gave up. Days rolled one after the other, placing another layer of dust on her dreams.

It was no surprise she was not allowed to his funeral. Never welcomed into their ranks, hated from the start for dragging their beloved son through the mud, his family made it clear they were not to mix.

Watching from the window as they carried his casket from the train to the hearse, the fog over her soul lifted.

“We’ll be ok.” She whispered to the baby safely nested in her belly.

  1. Loré, it’s so good to be reading your work again! I apologize for my vanishing acts, of late. There is such a permeable sense of sadness throughout this piece. The first paragraph (2 lines) are just gorgeous; I read them several times, for their simple beauty. Love this piece!
