While you lay asleep… her heart broke

Monday… yet another one… quite like the one before and the many Mondays that have preceded it.. yet this one Monday felt different. Each step she took was tentatively done, almost as if hesitating to go on.

Had she waited just a few more moments, had she not been so anxious, had she been patient she would have seen you moments later – risen from your slumber – running to grab her heart… but she didn’t.. you didn’t.
