The soft afternoon light follows the shadows waltzing across the wall, like a lover following the one who offers only a heartbreak. Curtains part before a breeze that carries the fragrance of spring flowers and something long forgotten. The music sneaks around the old furniture, whimsically scattered across the room. Two entangled bodies reflect in the large mirror at the foot of the bed, offering a splendid portrait of wasted chances. A long-case clock in the corner mocks the thieves, as the stolen time slips away.
His arms hold me tight.
This wont last.
But I don’t care about tomorrow.

“Mom, what is this flower?”
“It is a daffodil, my darling.”
You were my sun, my brightest star.
“Why is it yellow?”
“It is so the bees can find it easily.”
You were the center of my galaxy and my every breath revolved around you.
“Can we bring it home?”
“No, honey. It would wither and die without its roots.”
I don’t plant daffodils anymore. They remind me of your blinding light.
Spinning in this darkness, I long for a black hole to swallow me. Because, everything is better than watching exploding suns bending my universe.
