It shouldn’t break me, but it did.
Seeing them lost in their world broke me.
I didn’t even know them;
But the way she looked at her child sparked a sense of abandonment within me.
Happy. Complete. Innocent.
Emotions running wild in the smile of her child.
A sense of love and pride gleamed in her eyes.
Alone. Incomplete. Numb.
That’s all I saw in the chair in front of me.
