disappointment again… by Toni L.A. Cross

She flops on her back

on an unmade bed

releasing the breath of a thousand pent up sighs

discarded in a corner

is a pregnancy test

marked with a single blue line

a minus sign

subtracting the hope

of so many foolish dreams

and all her sweet self-told lies

Ice-drop tears

inside her breast

for all the times she named

a being that never existed.

My name is Toni Clegg, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.

    I love you Toni. I’m going to refrain from pat Christian comments…because I know how insufficient and even hurtful they are. Let us trust in His goodness.
