Broken Ornament Shoe

Watercolor (gouache), markers, and typewriter on watercolor paper

 

Why had I let her slip through my fingers?

It happened almost a year ago, right after the holidays. Since then, I'd tried filling the void with dozens of others, but she could not be replaced. I knew that now, and I could not imagine going through a holiday season without her.

I hoped there was a chance she still had feelings for me, too. If she was willing to forgive me, and to try and pick up the pieces, I vowed never to be that careless again.
