Post Relationship Reflections
A pink and black polka dot pyjama set. A lone sock looks out of place, quite forlorn. The partner MIA. Where on earth does the lost sock get to? Lost Sock Island? Have you ever wondered about that?
A ticket stub from the Annual Equine Awards. My first and last visit to the race track. Horseracing was never my thing.
Some pictures. A four-legged cutie, sporting fashionable sunglasses peers from a photo frame. The yellow shades are sunshiney yellow. A sunshine moment together with You Are The Sunshine Of My Life, blaring from the nearby radio. You never did get over that pooch.
Lottery tickets. How I hate gambling. You cannot win. You're not meant to win, not the average-man-on-the-street… Anyway, they say that money attracts money. Mmmm, makes me wonder. You did take off with Ms. Moneybags. It wasn't about the money, not from her side anyway…
Sticky post-its (minus the sticky factor) pop out from the corner of a rectangular cherrywood box. Mementoes of a communication phase, necessitated by erratic shiftwork. We became like two ships passing in the night. I think that marked the beginning of the end…
Sticks of gum. Makes me think of bubbles, not the sticky ones, the soapy ones. Standing side by side, lost in the domestic archetype created when you stand together at the kitchen sink. A delusional domestic dance to the music of cutlery and glasses submerged in warm soapy water…
Wistfulness is part of my nature. Not by choice though.
Here's choice: My parting words became the pin-prick that burst the bubble of your ever-inflating ego.
Ready for twenty questions? It became our favourite leisure activity. Have you cancelled our joint account? Does she know about your quirky morning schedule? Did you take my black sweater? Will you send me a wedding invitation? Do you think I'll attend? Did we really resolve our issues? Could I have tried harder? Do you really love her? You know my black and white cup? The one from Paris depicting the Eiffel Tower? Will you send it to me when you find the time?
So what do you think? I look forward to a full critique if you're so inclined. A simple comment will also do just fine.
