And just for thought...
Our signatures danced upon the paper, proof we were done, and I was all smiles.
I do not know if it was for you or for me or even for the witnesses sitting across from us
but I knew the face I had to wear.
You said some comment about sleeping together and I laughed as we shook hands, saying farewell.
You drove away in the blue van with the new woman in your life
and I drove home to our daughter.
I did not think much about you the rest of the day
until I saw you the next day to pick up your video card.
You smiled and said you were happy to see us as you placed money in my hand.
She gave you a hug and you said you would see me tomorrow.
I did not think much about you while I made love to another man that night in the bed we used to share
or when I kissed him good night, he didn't matter as much as you didn't.
I glanced at your picture on my way to bed for the night.
You stood with her in your arms, your make believe love for her and you were all smiles.
Our signatures danced on the paper, proof we were over.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
