You Said

 

I’ve waited two weeks.  You said that you were going to stay with your sister in Hartford for the weekend.  I didn’t believe you, not after our fight.  You never knew that I followed you that morning. I watched as you boarded the train for Independence, not Hartford. 

You ruined my weekend.  I fumed.  I screamed.  I got drunk.  I waited for you to return.  I wanted you here.  I wanted to kill you.  I wanted you dead.

You said you would call.  You didn’t.  I called.  I texted.  Your cell has been dead for a week.  Your sister said you were not there.  She had not talked to you.  Who did you go to?  I reported you missing,

My anger faded to worry.  I wanted to know where you went, who you are with.  Why had you lied to me?  What had I done?  I want you back.  I cried last night in our empty bed.

Now I know. I know the unidentified man found yesterday in a car at the bottom of a ravine is you.  I just know.  And I know my last memory of you is one I hate and will never forget.
