Stood Up, Jilted, and Broken-Hearted Thursday

How Could you?

I waited for you.  Impatiently, I’ll admit.  My anxiety built all day.  By evening I was checking every couple minutes to see if you were here.  Looking out windows, opening doors, even walking outside to see if I could see you.

Between 9 PM and 1 AM.  Your schedule, not mine.

Now today the weather’s all wrong.

I know I didn’t get the days mixed up.  You were very specific.  I also know I didn’t get the times wrong.  I know how speedy you are.  Five million miles an hour speedy.

I waited up until midnight and there was no sign of you.  All I saw was Jupiter and Venus.

Jupiter on the left, Venus on the right, by moonlight at midnight.

When will you return, Aurora?  When?

  1. Take consolation in the fact that you have many, many beautiful pictures from the night before. I'm sorry though that your hopes for last night didn't come to fruition.
