all at once;
the first moment to ourselves
we turned into one.
Didn’t take much time
to find the lines
we had crossed and
the ones set before us.
So sure of ourselves
and the way we fit
and moved
and loved every moment of it.
We will always be one
the promised hummed from
your lips, drawing me in
to place a kiss on mine.
I cherished those times
while longing for more,
hoping you were sure
about me
and us
and everything in between.
Future bright,
right ahead of us;
egging us on,
daring us to be free.
Needs were met
and mattered and
didn’t bleed through my eyes
like they used to all the time.
I was lost in you.
So sure our love
was deeply seeded,
wouldn’t bend or break
or change our fate or be beaten.
But loss changed you.
Hammer and nails,
our joyride derailed
and up went the walls
while I sat there defeated.
I needed you.
I had never felt so lost
so confused and abused and
I waited.
My love still strong for you,
I begged you to let me in.
You were gone,
we were broken
but I still had hope in my heart.
Years have passed,
surprised we’ve lasted this long;
hate-filled words and screams
and endless wrongs.
I never should’ve assumed
our bond was that strong;
but I promise,
I’ll love you
until my last breath
is gone.

Wicked Wednesday... be inspired & share...

  5. Thank you all for your comments! He lost his mother very suddenly…so it’s understandable how it would impact him. It’s been hard because it feels like a part of him died right along with her. We are working on the repairs, but I never expected to be challenged so much.

  6. Loss is what ruined the dynamic between my husband and me and we’ve never recovered it. I hate that it’s had this grip on him :(

  7. I’m so sorry that your struggle is so similar to mine. I’m always here if you need someone to talk with. ((hugs))

  8. I’ve read this one more than once since I first saw it. This one doesn’t have a picture, but what image could convey this ache without being horribly intrusive?
    I am terribly sorry for his loss, and yours, and I hope/pray/wish that you both heal.
