There wasn't even a moment for me to digest
what exactly was in motion.

First I see you with luggage then
you were out the door.

I need a second. Maybe more. 

No, I looked at you while you were stuffing your luggage.
I looked at you and saw your mouth moving slightly,
I think you were mumbling.
Then, you were out the door.

Were we talking, before you packed your bags? Yes,
I remember... I think I remember.

Were there hushed voices? After you planted your palm on my cheek, yes, there were hushed voices and mild sobbing.
You whispered a weak "sorry" before
you were out the door.

Something about being a bad husband, something about
not honoring my word... Something about love, no,
I don't remember.

Am I leaning out the window, am I looking at your car go?
Have I put my foot on the ledge, do I feel my tears flow?
Have I pushed myself forth, do I remember being that light?

I don't have to remember anymore.

Jacklyn Reynolds: As a mother of an Autistic child, I know how hard it can be. I love how beautiful you made everything. That's all I can say. I need to grab a tissue.

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

sibyleisley: Right away, I was charmed by the characters in Nothing Between Us. Bella is fun to follow and SO easy to relate to, and Jace is the guy that you could spend 24/7 with and not get sick of him. And together, they're adorable and so right for each other. The writer did such a great job making me car...

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...
