sunday scribblings

it has been a long time
since i have participated in
sunday scribblings
but i want to challenge myself
to try to write more often
so why not start here.

the prompt was fridge space
and what it brought me was a little snippet
of words that don't rhyme.




and i am left within
the fridge space of your heart
cold and empty
with only the bare necessities
to keep me alive

the light
only comes on
when you
look
at me.
