The Affair

Between yesterday's coffee and today's newspaper delivery, we somehow lost our sweetness, now you are just a memory. Words yelled in anger and frustrations hitting the limit wasn't this ocean we've swam full of joy and commitment? You..down on your knees praying I'd forgive you once again me...thinking you weren't going to see her, my best friend. I've lost you and I've lost her and somewhere lost myself I noticed that her favorite book she read was on the top shelf. You think I didn't notice all the strange phone calls at night? you actually believed that I wouldn't give up without a fight? Sinking slowly down under the abyss of broken promises a long time ago I told myself I would not allow paralysis But underneath the grass you both have dug for my grave I must pull myself out, take a moment and be brave. I have no one else who will rock me to sleep every night and I know deep down I will eventually be alright. All I need right now is a decent night full of sweet dreams I am begging you to leave, drive away so I may be free. Written By: Laura Loo Date Written: January 17, 2016

Let's shoot them both, seriously - some people need killing! It was so serious, I had to lighten up my inner tone. This is one or two phases of grief (betrayal/hurt) clearly and poetically stated. AND FICTION - Truly a realistic, dramatic and emotional write ... CayCay

Very glad to read your comments about this being a fine work of fiction! Yes, you hit it dead on as thats how it feels, been through that twice with two cheating ex-wives myself. Life gives, takes away and says get up when I knock you down. THE WINNERS ALWAYS GET BACK UP TO GO ON AND LIVE! A7

I see you're notes, glad it's fiction. Even better...your description felt raw and real, a tribute to your talent.

oh Luloo this is so deep and sad and heartbreaking and many people will be able to relate to your words - I love the positivity in 'moving on' in the final two stanzas:-) hugs Jan xx7
