Jul 2017
she opened the door
and let out an anguished cry
how long had it been left to
alone, forgotten
in the darkness?

shoving everything else aside
desperate, careless
her hands closed tightly around
she rushed to yank it forward
into the light

oh no. no no no.
she held it in her hands
gently now, defeated
the need to rush had gone
she could see now
that it had long since expired

trembling, she wept
fell to her knees
and made a promise
that from this day forth
never again
would Nutella to go to waste
