My View of You

Your arm wraps 
around her shoulder.
She slips in—wears you
easily and steps in the place
that was our embrace 
for eighteen years.
This looks so effortless for you.

Out of breath—
my life crosses the finish line
of a marathon-marriage to this 
slow-motion, surreal, stream of  pain.
Unsteady on my feet like a nervous bride,
my forevers and until death vows
unceremoniously fade..

    Very poignant write here, Tamra. So much expressed with few words! Really a keeper that I've added to my favorites list. The marathon marriage to the slow-motion pain and the vows at the end ... its an incredible piece!!
