This Time Apart

Updated on November 28, 2011



This time apart

was not my design

I searched and thought

of all the ways

to explain and understand.

It’s been so long

days turn into weeks

weeks turn into months

no reasons come to mind.

You walked away

because you could.

Trapped inside a web

of desire

you once were the dream

of everything materialized

now you are nothing.

You threw aside

the love I gave

discounted my loyalty

as if it were but a whim

instead of all I had to offer.

No choice left to determine

decisions made for me

I walk the street alone

to figure a new way.

After so many years

I am glad

that I finally see the light.

Blinded by my love

I made excuses for your ways

but all along

you were the same.

      Mine deceived me after 40 years, 7 kids and one son killed. Life is hard, but God never said it would be easy. Your right, "life goes on" And their IS light at the end of the tunnel. I'll try again with my profile. Be Happy Kay

      Hi True, Yes, they walked away because they could, and we will never understand. Because their is NO understanding.

      But remember, Girl you are Not a nothing.
