The Break

board-1820678_1920
My last words, whispered with bated breath
before you turned and left
leaving me alone and broken
like a fallen egg from a robin’s nest.
 
No goodbyes, only brief words hurled
as you disappeared 
per chance we’ll meet again my love
in another world.

  2. Lost love encapsulated in in that wonderfully expressive simile ‘like a fallen egg from a robin’s nest’. I could almost hear the shell of your heart break. Lovely, Linda!

  3. “My last words, whispered with bated breath” – so much in these words. We do try (sometimes) one last time knowing it is not going to make any difference.
    And, the closing lines gives so much hope.
