When You Left.....I

by Ladykelshan

Age Group: Adult

When you left,
I learned to dissect what was there,
I learned to look, a bit after the facts..
it was so hard.It took me a long time,
to straighten out what the "reality" was
of our couplehood.

When you strayed, my mind unraveled...
I could not feel, and I could feel.
I sobbed, and I cried, , , ,
but, I was a new world
with new thoughts,
that swirled around me
in a fevered frenzy.

When you deserted me,
I felt all alone...I had no body to
cheer me on. I had no one to
blame.I had nobody to say
"I care!"
I knew that I was helplessly
in pain, and I would have to
deal with it, head on.

When you were elsewhere,
I didn't know, that somewhere
it showed, that you and I
were through, not together,
like before..we were separate
people functioning on a
forked path.
No longer one, as we
used to be.

When we were apart,
I thought about you,
but, I tended to just be
as I always was..and NOT
deal with what could happen.
I took all things for granted.
I took YOU, for granted,
and now, you are gone...

When you journeyed away
I learned how to get up,
and face the new day, and
put a smile on my face,
and try to do my things
one day at a time.
I may have lost you....
but, I have NOT lost me!

I will keep rising..and I will
keep matter where
you are in your life, and no matter
where I am, there is always a
new corner of the world to
investigate, and a mountain
to climb to.
I will keep walking, and I will
keep matter
if the days are gray, or sunny.
I am certain that I'll be

Author's Notes: Written by ladykelshan
Written Saturday, December 8th, 2007

This is actually about a couple that I know that is going thru a divorce..
and I began to think about it , from my own and the wife's perspective...of what is happening, when these things occur. (There are a LOT more feelings involved here..but I just wanted to put some down...just a part of what she or anybody might feel in this scenario) .
It is Not fun when you are not with that person anylonger..after being with them for a long, I wanted to just express things that I knew a little bit about... (partially from my own life's experiences..and also just thinking about it, from somebody else's point of view (POV) .
