She Left, Never To Return
She looked one last time into the mirror and blew out the candles…
She hurried to the train in her black fur coat. She was excited and delirious all at once. Everything quite suddenly changed and she couldn’t bare another day in this house she could never call home.
She threw in a few dresses, her necklace of pearls and diamonds, the earrings to match. Her hands shaking. The adrenaline pulsating. Her brush, five favorite books, one of poetry.
She was running towards the train and yelled out loud “Please!…Wait!”
The ticket man said, “Good day madam.”
Out of breath she said. “It is a good day, isn’t it?”
He asked “Traveling far?”
“Yes and permanently.”
As she sat down she looked through the window at everything for the last time.”
