Its a cold and brutal night here in Berlin. Collar up against the wind, I stand staring at the blueblack river, not sorry to be leaving, heartbroken all the same.
'Come with me,' you said. 'A grand beginning. We'll have our honeymoon before the wedding.' And so I did, to be with you, to see you stand before the world delivering your wisdom.
The days were a smorgasbord of speeches, full of charts, predictions, solutions to the problems of the world, the nights a whirl of dinners, dancing, spiced with the wit and insight of bright minds. You were lionized; I was your suitable accessory.
Tonight I saw you look at her, so beautiful and brilliant in a way I could not be. And dancing, dancing, dancing, holding her the way that you held me, my world collapsing in three-quarter time. I, a refugee in a dark corner, sobbed in rhythm with the violins.
And being you, always so true to fact and proof, did not deceive. 'I'm sorry,' was your chorus. 'What can I say?' And I, not bothering to say what could be said, packed silently, then called the airline and a car.
Now I stand shivering in this cold city, blank pages waiting to be written, tossing all the dreams I thought were ours into the river, watching them drown in blueblack water, waiting for a cab. ~ copyright 2016 RC deWinter
