Thank you Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for the prompt this week. Her story hit me right in the heart. It is poignant and emotional. I felt every word as I read it. Be sure to check it out. Rochelle is a genius.

It’s over Melissa. I have to go.

What did I do wrong? Tell me Miles.

You didn’t do anything wrong. We were merely a passing fancy.

I thought you loved me.

I do. I’m no good. You are so loved. I can’t compete.

I don’t want you to compete. I want you. You’ll never want for anything. I’m your girl.

You can’t be Love. You belong to someone else. I belong to no one. Never have, never will.

Stricken with grief, Melissa turns away. She stares through the stained glass window of the coffee shop and lets the tears come.
