The day turned black for the sun was gone

The moon gleamed high in the sky

It was an honest coincidence that I was by his home

The eerie moon was a reminder

Of my lonely place awaiting me

Yet the comfort of our my old home

Was only a second from where I was

And he would be there

If I turned to the right I could reach him

And my loneliness could be gone

Now I know that I won this game

He would take me back for sure

If I turned left I would resume my independence

My pain, my healing, my grief, my growth

To the right I would be held, and comforted

I veered my car to the left and continued

I realized my comfort would be short lived if I turned to the right

And if I turned to the left, my growth would be forever

I must continue to trudge…

I am struggling but I am doing it. I started this blog to help myself because I was falling apart and still do sometimes but...hey what doesn't kill us makes us stronger!


      1. That has a way of creeping up on us sometimes huh? It is really hard when they make it easy to say yes to the temporary relief. They say things that make us want to believe our lying hearts. I am so proud of you. I wrote a haiku for you tonight. 🙂


  1. Aren’t those the games that held you in an unhealthy relationship to begin with? I know they were for me.
    There is great pride in being able to say enough.
    Stay Strong !
