poem: love others and love yourself

(100 words) 10 March 2018

By S.R.A. Markin

he turned off the display screen, and then the cell phone
vibrated in his hand. it was a text from her.
she wrote about how sweet he is to her
and how good he makes her feel.
she wrote about meeting him
in dreamland
and filled the text with emojis.
and before a red heart, she wrote out:
i love you.
he clicked on her display photo and kissed the image
of her forehead. he walked to the mirror
and looked at himself
and watched the tears stream
down the sides of his face.
“i love you too,”
he said.
