no reply

One moment he is cooking
in the kitchen
silent as usual
the aromas and sizzling
drift over
make my mouth water

“Love, that smells delicious.”
no reply
“Can I help?”
no reply

i try to find him
he disappeared
he is gone, and it’s my fault
the curse took him
as it always does
we were so careful
and it made no difference

my beloved
my single soulmate
consumed by the ether

i dont think i can
do this again
