Watching from the Window

As she shaved her husband kept

encouraging her to go further until her

lips were bare and her little

muff trim and tidy, then he

nixed her plain white underwear saying the

black would go down better, and as she dressed he

kept saying how beautiful she looked and how

proud he was and it helped

lighten the lead in her belly, the

dread of a first date, the

queasiness infidelity engendered,  and though he

told her he approved her

heart was still heavy as she

double-locked the door, blipped open the

little Mini she’d bought to replace the

car he’d died in and waved at the ghost

watching from the window, who

blew her a kiss which

encompassed their whole life together.

    Fridayam, you never cease to provoke real emotions with your words… Belly aches with a mixture of sadness and sweetness. This is simply beautiful -x-

    I agree with with Annie…

    Very bittersweet

    Yup. Life is definitely for the living, tho we remember those gone with a little frisson of guilt, nostalgia and poignancy. I like this. x
