Rejection – A Poem

Kitchen scent of roasted garlic,

Silverware and white dishes

Glow in the last of a candle,

Flickering like the television

That shouldn’t be on.

Fresh floral sheets on a single bed,

Crisp untouched covers pulled back

Should you change your mind.

A single pink rose on the nightstand

Stands alone in a crystal vase.

Smiling faces in laughing crowds,

Champagne toasts, raised glasses,

Perhaps they thought

I already had plans.
