Hair Ties

 

Small, circular, black.

Scents of lavender and love.

A reminder, and a glimpse of the future.

A soft smile and an even softer kiss.

 

Another one.

 

Silky, stretched, traces of purple.

Hidden in the bed, where she lays.

Foreshadowing, and maybe a keepsake.

Cool sheets, a warm blanket, tired eyes.

 

One more.

 

Crumpled, worn, singular.

On the dresser, next to her picture.

By the clock, across the room, empty.

The day's begun, and she is gone.
