The spaces between

I just got off the phone to you and I already miss you.

You looked so good, illuminated by the glow from the screen. It is unfair that I must get ready for work when you are just lying down in your bed for sleep.

I got home from work and you said nothing to me. The only form of communication from you was the line of dirty clothing from the front door to the couch. The patches of mud that has flaked off your sodden boots. It all says fuck you. Fuck me.

The dinner I made us gets cold on the dining table. I guess this means you will not be eating with me again.

What happened to us?

Work goes by so slowly. All I want is to be done so I can speak with you again.

You would be awake by now. Just rising. Drinking your coffee. Showering…

I long for the day when we can be together. I want to touch your face, your hair, look into your eyes without the world in between us.

I hate going to bed.

I stay up as long as possible. Cleaning. Folding clothes. Looking on social media. Anything. Fucking anything but coming to bed.

You sleep on the edges. A space between us so vast and uncrossable. The couple of feet of blank sheets between our bodies is a chasm. A desert of sandstorms and frozen nights.

A space where once there was love and heat and wanting. Is now filled with the anger and resentment of passing time.

I want to hold you.

I have never felt so close to another human. How can this be possible?

I can feel you with me, even when we are not talking. I can feel you thinking about me. I can feel your love for me. Your wanting is what gets me through the day.

I want you.

I want you.

I want you.

I want you… but you no longer want me…

This wraps up SPACE week for me. Tomorrow I will post the next prompt.

I can’t believe I actually followed through with a whole week… lmfao

    1. No… just me… I am doing multiple pieces from the one prompt. I would never expect others to do this. It is just to show that you can draw inspiration from a prompt to create anything…

      I am glad you enjoyed it. It is what I wanted to write, I just hadn’t started until this morning 🤣

      Love you all the love, melon princess

    1. I know right! Lol not that I have ever had one but I imagine it would be terrible. But I understand how you can feel close to someone despite the physical distance and feeling distant when sleeping in the same bed as someone.

  2. Wow… The longing, and sensuality… I felt it right along with you. So vivid and clearly expressed, until the heartbreaking last line… which seems impossible.
    I loved this!

    1. Maybe they weren’t even the same people… I never said they were the same person. Still… sad.
      I enjoyed this… writing it. Because one of them I am not really familiar with at all but longing is something I understand…
      I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Muffins

    1. It is probably the worst feeling in the world… giving yourself entirely to someone, only to have them lock you in a drawer and throwing away the key… it is draining. And painful… I do not miss it for a second.
