Gone

*Gone*

 

I need to water my plants.

They aren’t mine, technically.

They aren’t his either.

They used to be

Ours, but we split up.

He is gone now.

 

We never had a baby.

Or a puppy.

Or a gold fish.

Or true love.

Just a few plants

And a lease.

Leftover pizza.

 

The kind of relationship

Your grandma

Doesn’t know about

And she keeps asking you

If you have met a

Fine young man yet.

 

And you always say no,

Not yet.

And you never lied to her.

You just lied to

Yourself.
