Wednesday was always our day

The only constant across the many variations of “us”

Drinking as friends in the pub

Drinking as “friends” in the pub

Your hand on my knee in the pub

Definitely more than friends in the pub

Kissing in the pub

Sharing our scars in the pub

Falling in love in the pub

Laughing less in the pub

Difficult conversations in the pub

Crying in the pub

Saying goodbye in the pub

Today is Wednesday

But we no longer go to the pub

I long to sit with you again

As friends

As lovers

As anything

But Wednesdays are just like every other day now

Another day without you

Now every day is without you
