It’s Not What You Think


Birds singing, sun shining

Empty space your pillow bare

Sleepless nights, lonely mornings

No sign of love seen anywhere.

Your walk of shame’s become a crawl

You creep inside and close the door

Glance over at me but I’ve been done

I just won’t take it anymore.

Again you’re late and didn’t call

And reek of what you can’t disguise

You say you’re sorry and you love me

With so much guilt behind your eyes.

No longer moved by your dried up tears

So much deception and endless lies

Kids need more of your attention

Give them hugs and you’ll hear their cries.

To be concise you can no longer stay

Stories you tell no excusable cause

I’ll say once again you gotta go

This isn’t temporary or a marital pause.

Sorry my dear we’ve reached the end

You’ll learn a very hard lesson today

My forgiveness completely depleted

It never had to end this way.

Faded memories of the time

Of watching you walk down the aisle

I fell in love all over again

With your beauty and winsome smile.

Though we said till death do us part

And vowed commitment for the rest of our lives

You’re adulterous ways caused too much pain

Gone are your days as my admirable wife.

You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am but rather I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for a first approach; stick around and you'll understand the power behind that statement. What I do is another story! I embrace life hoping to live my purpose as a mother, daughter, sister, confidante and friend; I laugh, cry, and support; I admire, like and love; I listen, read and write. Most importantly, I have faith and thank God for all of me. My intent is to inspire others using my gifts and "Don't Forget the Half" reminds me to cast nothing aside. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.
