WHEN IT HURTS

Her angry eyes drilled into His
How could she have missed it
Tom was no longer hers..

His love for her had dissipated
Leaving behind a hollow shell
Carefully disguised as care..

The gifts and superficial gestures
Had her fooled all along..

But now the pretense was over
He was moving in with his lover
She bit her lip tasting her hurt..

She was barely able to stay calm
She with effort pulled herself free
Don't ever come back Tom....

She said slamming the door.
