Back home

28 Apr


‘I think it is time,’

he smiled sadly

collecting up

his battered notebook

black pen

dark cloak

sad guitar

and half empty bottle,

and kissing her forehead,

‘for me to go

back home.’

    Home is where she sat, curled by the fireplace waiting for him with a full bottle of wine and open arms.
