The black dress

She waited for him. She couldn’t sleep alone. Once he came, comforted by his presence, she fell asleep.

When she awoke, he wasn’t there, but, in his place lay the black dress she wore to his funeral.

She lay back down and waited for him to come. She was alive, but wished she was dead.
