The moment hung thick in the air,
Like morose memories.
“How could I have been so stupid?”
And a rotten carcass was all that was left.
“And why didn’t you come?”
In the end, the chair was left empty in the middle of the room;
Would I have sat,
I fear we both would have disappeared.
So I waited some more,
Wondering if you would show up,
Screaming inside my mind,
But I couldn’t remember your name.
All it wanted was your validation.
“Please?” It begged. “I need more!”
