Sometimes love isn't forever ...

Right after making love to me
(scratch that/replace with …)
Right after having sex with me,
He tells me the truth.
“You’re strong,” he says
“You’ll be OK,” he says
There’s not another woman
If there were I would scratch her eyes out
And feel better.
There wasn’t a big fight
At least then I could have
Screamed! Ranted! Raved!
Exorcised this pain.
It was just a whimpering little death.
Twenty-five years of lovin’ this man
Ending with his telling me
“You’re strong, you’ll be OK”

I could hear the television in the
Living room
The family doing its Sunday night
The telephone rang,
Kids ran up and down the stairs,
Someone hollered, someone laughed.
No one aware that life had just changed
For us all.
A sucker punch to the gut
Followed by tears
... And prayer
The person I loved and trusted most
In the world
Said I was going to be OK --
So it must be true ...

Wow a low blow!...So sorry...The only thing I can say is, it's up to you what it will be like!If you don't let anyone elses idea of how you should be and go with your own gut and heart feelings you'll make it through.

Nicely written, Leysa.
From one who's been there, and heard those words, it won't be OK, it will just be different.
