I left two dozen daisies by your grave as if it could somehow make up for all my wrongs. As the skies opened up in reply, raining down years’ worth of regrets and sorrows, I understood what you felt in your last moments — abandoned and alone. I fell to my knees and whispered, “I’m sorry,” for the first time in my life, knowing it wouldn’t make any difference.

      1. The last comment had a typo. Lol sorry. What I was trying to say is that this piece feels like it deserves to be longer, explored more. There’s lots of questions I’m interested in finding out. 😊

  1. I agree with Catherine, I want to know what happens next .. you always make me wonder, and that’s the sign of a good writer for definite and you can do it in any form, be it poem or short story or even one liner. xo
