The full title doesn't fit. "Morning Musings of a Woman With Abandonment Issues: the Day After a Fight"

-I'm not looking to publish it or win awards, I'm just venting more or less.

-True story, my warped mind expected that my husband of 6 years left over a fight regarding the whereabouts of my spiral notebook.

Morning Musings of a Woman With Abandonment Issues

You blink sleepily at me
(or is it self-satisfied?)

Is this feeling justified?
My ire, magnified,
indignation, qualified,

as I think of how truly
I am.

You'll never understand the panic
seizing me,
squeezing me,
as I searched frantically
around our room's anatomy.
I expected to find nothing--
nothing in your drawers,
nothing where you keep
your shoes, your wallet, your keys.

Expecting nothing is hardwired in me.

The relief washed over me
with your sleepy blink
and the anger welled up,
like the shower water did
in our clogged tub.

The anger sloshed over,
smearing my mascara.
The relief eviscerated
with each tear liberated.
I stood in the doorway, naked,
every decision weighted.
I choose the most jaded

and you blink the hangover
from your eyes, sedated.

Baiting me, love.

  firstly, i love the title....

funny when people can do the unexpected. and even more so, our own reaction to that.

i will never forget one of the first real fights i had with my husband... he made me soooooo mad (over some stupid jealous idea i had) (sort of justifed though... he was talking to his ex-fiance on a regular basis) (and i do have a jealous streak) (i try really hard not to though).. anyway, i went to take off in my car and it wouldn't start. he came down the drive and jump started me and said: see ya later

you can imagine how pissed that could make someone (namely me). so pissed, i ran away from home for the night. i got over it though. probably seemed like a nut case at the time too (looking back on it now).

this is where this write takes me at least....
