Meet Me At Midnight

Meet me at midnight!” How many times have I played over that same message? Hundreds by now, I reckon.

I drove out here, my cherished possessions packed neatly in a bag in the car. We were going to run away togetherAnd I got here early. An hour early, to be precise, so eager was I to get going.

It’s quiet out here, almost deserted. Any vehicle can be heard from miles off and there has been very few of them. I could easily count them on my two hands, and not one of them has been him. Most have been travelling back the way I came.

Not one of my messages has been answered. Have any of them even got through? ‘Maybe he’s one his way’, that’s what I kept telling myself. The signal around these parts is far from the best. It’s been too long now though, for me to go on believing that.

I can see the sun starting to rise in the distance. He’s not coming, has changed his mind. There’s no other way to explain it. He’s dumping me, leaving me standing here alone. He has chosen her instead.

I'll wait a bit longer, give him another half hour, but already my mind has started to make its way back home.
