What Could Have Been.

He’d not really considered the consequences of saying those words. No, he’d presumed things would go on as ‘before’.

She’d not walk away. She’d not leave him.

But she did.

She was not good enough so she left.

He’d not considered the ‘after’.

It had never entered his mind how much she had come to mean, how lonely and lost he would feel without her.

Everywhere he looked he saw her face.

Every sound he heard reminded him of her words.

And there was no escaping the fact that it was his fault. He should never have spoken those words.
