And just for thought...
What happens when a love promised for a lifetime breaks?
You plant your seeds and grow your children, putting aside all of you,
giving all of your dreams and hopes to the pitter patters you've filled your house with.
You celebrate every joy, every lesson, every achievement,
never watering yourself or each other, forgetting to nurture the two that started this tree.
You watch your flowers bloom but you did not allow yourself to feel the sun.
One by one, your watch your tiny seedlings blow away with the wind,
to grow their own flowers, to tend their own garden.
You sit with the man you promised your life to in an empty house,
realizing without their laughter, the two of you only have silence.
After all these years you have become strangers
because you spent your life focusing on everyone else.
He wants to tell you he loves you still but resentment has scarred your heart.
She wants to reach out to you but anger has made her branches useless.
What happens when you sit at the same table now?
There are no messes to clean up other then the one that's been spilling for years,
the one that has been building for years unattended.
Your flowers have all flown away.
Now it's just the dust of a marriage left.
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.
