Tamia relaxes on the step of the pool. Beside her are the flowers he gave her “just because.” Soaked and broken, they no longer hold any sentiment for her. She sits up and walks into the pool, wondering where her boyfriend is now. Back in their bedroom, his cuff links are on the floor. She’s been looking through the pockets of his pants and checking his cell phone for unfamiliar numbers. She fingers the watch she gave him for his birthday.
In the sauna, she lays around in the fetal position, knowing the relationship is over. She stares blankly at the top of the ceiling. While on the floor, she covers herself with dirt.
At the pool, she thinks of questions she will ask her boyfriend once he gets home. On the floor, she tosses and turns, thinking maybe it’s her that’s the problem. She walks in the water and back to the steps of the pool.
Tamia twists the material of her bathing suit around, she touches herself on her chest and does all while being wet. She has a beautiful voice yet is acting though she has to make up for it. It’s unfortunate she has to try twice as hard to get noticed and it still doesn’t work.
