My Susan

Would my girlfriend look back?
I stood at the airport gate with arms around My Susan, caressing her as if giving comfort, but I wondered. I pulled away yet didn't release her; I just looked into eyes sparkling the color of the sky, searching for answers.
The corners of her mouth turned up, and I returned her smile then pulled her close again, my chin resting on her shoulder. I wasn't letting her go; I couldn't let go of My Susan.
"You're going to miss your flight."
I said nothing. I just gripped her tighter like a child to a security blanket and tasted her perfume. I loved her perfume. I loved everything about My Susan.
"Last call!" the gate agent announced.
She thrust me away like a used Kleenex.
My hand flowed from her grasp like water shriveling in the desert, our fingertips touching for an instant, grasping at hope, then nothing.
I backed away to the gate, my worried eyes focused on her. Would she look back?
My Susan didn't walk away.
She skipped!
Blocking others wanting to board the plane, I stood there, mouth falling open, watching Susan leave, watching her skip down the corridor and leave. A tear brushed my cheek as I climbed into the plane. "There's nothing left for me here."
