Plans Unplanned

The beam in Hannah’s eyes peaked
through the long strands of her blonde hair.
The tears that spread across her cheeks
twisted my insides.
Hannah built my trust on a house of cards.
But then she pumped the brakes on us,
after carrying romance in the palm
of her hand.
What am I to do with the memories
of us tangled in her sheets?
My voice relaxed as she whispered
versions of something sweet;
something under my knees but over
my head.
The plan is there was no plan
that’s why she’s pregnant,
auto-corrected her misspelled texts
that I misinterpreted.
“We’ll name her after your late mother,” I said.
“Sure it’s going to be a girl?” Hannah arched a brow.
“Positive.” I smiled.
