Please dont say

I slept.


Laying across the bed in my tiny shorts and tank top, writing words on paper by candelight.


You came home from work, you said I was gorgeous.


So many fears go thru my head. Tears were shed earlier.


You werent there for them. You didnt know. You were tired yourself.


Sleep sweet Sleep


How I didnt want it to end.


But alas it did.


I was faced with those grinning faces, telling me about Her.


I didnt want to hear, I didnt acknowledge. I didnt want to hear, No stop stop I just dont want to know, PLEASE just dont tell me.


Those grinning faces didnt know any better, didnt realize what they were saying, what pain I was feeling.


I held back the crying.


Comfort to a some degree has returned. With soft smiles, gentle hugs, and ponderous questions filling my evenings. How wonderful it is to behold.
