I went home and she was out. Her scent lingered in the air. Her half finished coffee cup on the table as usual. Books scatered around the bed. A cosy mess. I sit at the table, finish her coffee gone cold and lazily watch the light fade through the orange curtain. It's dark now. I know that on her way home, looking up from the street, she will smile at finding the lights on. The bed is empty but full of promises.
