Daily Prompt: The Suitcase


He remembered how she masked the countless

sleepless nights with her radiant smile one last time.

He remembered her grief-stricken face

and dark eye-bags camouflaged with expensive make-up.

He remembered how her dark hair covered her face

as it attempted to hide the aftermath of shedding buckets of tears

throughout the night. But it was futile.

He remembered how she exuded vulnerability and resignation,

as she struggled to lug her Suitcase down the stairs

Because right now, he wishes he had the courage

to hold on to her, as her feet slowly

led her to the most painful goodbye..
