Independence

The sky outside is stormy and dark. Lightning flashes in the sapphire blue of your eyes. My palms and soles are cold. You are furious about something.

The stewardess pours a steaming latte in the Styrofoam cup, and it wobbles a bit.

Is it going to be my last sip of life?

Suddenly, you smile and I feel the warmth returning. Your anger was not about me. I wonder what has been troubling you. Can I do something to help?

I walk out of the café with heavy feet. I don’t want my happiness to be so dependent on you.

  2. I really like this, Reena, because it is so relevant to my experiences with relationships. Sometimes I learned the hard way but I learned!! There are times when we must keep a clear head about ourselves above others. Thank you for joining in.
