poem: continued to write

(100 words) 4 March 2018

By S.R.A. Markin

i wonder how others deal with their loneliness,
he thought
he wrote about when he first met
his ex-girlfriend
a thought he hasn’t had in a while,
and this had allowed his mind
to return
to a time
he was proud.
he went back and felt her presence,
excitement between them
he felt emotional and wanted to call her
at that very moment
when he had typed out “good job”
onto the screen.
the first words he had said to her
he desired to apologize for everything
after those words.
but he hadn’t. he continued to write.
