The day was so busy, Eric barely crossed my mind.
Only once, when I thought, "I've got this. No problem."
It was like he never existed.
I dealt with everything and everyone we ever encounter together, on my own.
I came home to rushed dinner, chores, work duties lasting into the wee hours.
Neither of us reached out.
I went to bed exhausted but fine... woke up sobbing in the middle of the night.
I do not enjoy this life without him.
