how do i begin to say, all that needs to be said
where do i even start to explain from where all this led.

i read and write and read some more
wishing things were different from my very core.

i am not who i was, nor who i want to be
forever changed is the true essence of me.

lying down beside me, or a million miles away
when faced with this dilemma, i begged for her to stay.

truth confronts the omission and demands a fight
seeing everything crumble with a bright and painful light

living in my life today i see where i went wrong
trying to forgive myself with a vengeance that is strong

    I enjoyed reading your wonderful poetry this morning Germaine. It has been awhile since I have been reading and commenting. So going to make it short this time with a promise to try and read more often after the holidays. Have a wonderful weekend and may it be full of love and joy. Love, Carol
