Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “the last thing you put in your fridge.” Start your post with the last thing you put in your fridge. Let your mind wander from there. Enjoy!

I took it out my chest
For I could not bear the pain
Put my love in the fridge
And all you got on the other end
Was a cold and frigid heart
Short words
Little reply
And another me
All my love and warmth
Ebbed away
For I’d had enough
By taking me for granted
You changed who I am
And now I don’t know
If I can ever let it thaw
Fear keeps it frozen
Vacuum-packed and sealed
Because I don’t know what to do
With these cracked pieces
Of my beating soul
