The Antidote

Even the legendary Stevie Wonder,
Can see the trail of your many lies.
The storm brought lightning and thunder,
Yet I remained blind in a false paradise
The shelter which I provided
Just wasn’t good enough.
Through the dark maze I guided,
Hoping you’d follow my love.

I awoke only to discover,
That I was totally alone.
You chose another lover,
And it hurt me to the bone!

I buried all the pain,
By writing poems ‘til my fingers bled.
I thought I would go insane,
Maybe wind up lost or dead!

My heart continued to ache,
And still I constantly wrote.
Now you live with your mistake.
Leaving you was my antidote!!

    Look to new beginings, Jimmy. You'll find that special woman when you go home. Wanna bet?? Have faith that you will and so it will be! Love, Annalise

    It really truly hurts when we are betrayed by those we love. Sending you a comfort hug and hope the sun shines again for you. Vie
