No rings, no missed calls. A text from Coley on NYE, and a heartbreaking round of coffee with Mel.


That's all my life amounts too.

I haven't felt this alone since my Mimma passed away. Back then, I was so indignant. So angry. Everyone was leaving me but I could not understand why. I felt like I deserved more from everyone. More than abandonment, more than pain. I may not have gotten more but I held onto the notion that it was mine to have.

Now, my tune is different.

I use to think the fault lay at the feet of others. Yet, in the wake of being tossed aside by the person I trusted most, I realize it was me all along. I was never enough. Good enough, strong enough, enough of whatever anyone needed. So they all left, marching off to a brighter horizon.

I think of my favorite short story. I am the child left behind. Only the moral is different. It wasn't because someone had to be left, but because no one should have to shoulder the weight of the worthless.
