Discarded Love

A lifetime we spent as one, in all ways.
You were my celestial focus.
All rays of light in your direction.

Unbeknownst to me
your fire burned elsewhere,
alit to all the world
but shielded from me.

Was I but a mat
for which you to trod
nonchalantly upon my heart?
There you left a gaping wound.

Swiftly you exited
with your own intentions.
Absconding with my heart,
future and sanity.

All to be cast aside in a ditch
along side the road of your life
like yesterday's litter.

    LUV is wonderful when it is good and LUV is awful when it goes sour... enjoyed your creative lines so perfectly described Linda.. we have all suffered this pain of LUV..
