Today just like I've done everyday for the past three hundred and thirty four days
I woke up
The disparity in today however is that
I didn't wake up to the sweet smell of early morning caffeine with bacon and eggs
I didn't wake up to that light kiss on the forehead which you never fail to deliver.
Rather I woke up to the smell of alcohol and dried tears on my face
I woke up to the smell of defeat and betrayal
I woke not feeling like the most charmed woman on Milky Way
But I woke up feeling unlucky
This morning I woke to the smell of a breakfast I never thought the one whom I loved the most in the world could serve to me.
