15 Years

It has been 15 years since we have been together.

15 Years, 1 House, 2 Kids, I should feel happy.

As I am standing by the doorway of our bedroom, staring at you, you don’t even notice me. Laid down in our bed, looking and laughing at some random video online on your tablet.

Moving towards the closet to change you don’t even look at me.

15 years, the same routine over and over again. We have become so used to each other that we don’t even try or do anything new anymore.

This feeling of loneliness and sadness succumbs me more and more like a pit on the stomach that can’t seem to go away.

Laying down on the bed, you switch off your tablet, pull the covers, turn to the opposite side, and wait for me to switch off the light. As you do, every single night.

Just as I reach for it, a thought comes to mind:

"How I wish I could disconnect all of these feelings like turning off this light switch"

“I miss you!”, the words spill from my mouth without even realizing. My heart starts beating rapidly while my hands shake in anticipation of your reply. Our backs are facing each other, I can’t seem to move.

The seconds feel like hours, you don’t answer. Taking a deep breath, I finally sit up. As I approach you the loneliness and sadness strike again. You’re already sleeping, so profoundly, without a care in the world.

Staring at the ceiling for a few minutes I shift and turn the light switch off, like I do, every single night, in the last 15 years.

Sushi3809: I would say, it is splendid to see a writer who knows their way around language. I do think, however, that maybe it was a slightly hurried plot line. especially the slightly abrupt relationship between Jessie and Jason. It was an enemies to lovers trope and I just wish you would have let it burn ...

darling61rivera: I've never read a series of books before,Your story line was everything for different type of readers. I usually don't cry when I read but you had me crying for joy or sadness. I hope you continue to keep writing more books like these.🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🥰

fannthesmith: I appreciated the attention to detail in the grammar and spelling. The plot is rather simple, and straightforward. However, it is well executed. It's a really short story, and those are nice sometimes. I felt the characters could use more depth/dialogue, but all in all it's well done.

Dorothy Marcinkowski: Amenzing story can't stop reading
