I brought the sheets with me.

by Gabrielle L Gervais

I brought the sheets with me.

I packed them up from home and brought them to this place.
I thought it would make a difference in whose memory I slept
but day after day I did not find you there.

Homesick or heartbroken? Either way, the feeling of loss is there.

Just beautiful. Perfectly captured.

...I know this story, every word, and in the negative space between what was wished, and what has been...fine, elegant, precise, needed. Thank you. LK
