I have held on to a cube of caramel for far too long and finally tossed it in the trash today. While it was a reminder of you I don’t need it or want it any more. Just like you don’t want me. I forgot I even had it until I opened that pencil pouch and really had to dig for something that wasn’t there anyway. Just like you aren’t here and never intended to be here, I see the futility of space that cube of caramel takes up in the pouch. Don’t have the room or the desire for it. It doesn’t fit into any of the niches of my life and is too hard to be malleable or conducive to altered states required to coexist with me. Goodbye caramel, hello chocolate. Now to find unmeltable chocolate!
