Prompt of the Week

Today’s prompt is:

Loneliness

My Response:

Tonight
feels like my first night
alone
entirely alone.

All alone
I toss and turn
and my bed feels cold without you.

This isn’t how it was supposed to be.
I was supposed to see you more;
now I will only see you less.
I don’t think you know
how hard this is for me-
and a bitter part of me hopes
it will be just as hard for you.

I hope
someday
I will never have to spend another night alone.

Your turn
