Alone doesn’t have to mean lonely
Yet, at night,
the absence is palpable
Maybe another sip of wine
In response to Harper Thorpe’s prompt “alone” and in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month.
This is dedicated to all those who have lost spouses, children, family and are now struggling to reinvent themselves and their lives.

I’m in a codependent relationship.
He’s a control freak.
He calls. I see what he wants.
He expects treats. I give them.
Magnanimously, he cuddles with me,
rises and falls
Riding the waves
’til it rests
in this place
in peace, in love,
In response the the Dec. 30th Chalkboard prompt “Spirit” by Manasi Kidtarkar
