divorce, honesty, marriage

The Outer Rings


Date night,
Everything feels so real,
When you’re being honest.
Not feeding the fantasy,
Not joining in the dance.
The candlelight, the sunset,
the romantic view…
But I no longer take my cue
to be
What’s expected of me.
Honesty with love and compassion
Cuts like a knife.
We’re both left bleeding.
There’s no quick fix,
No Tylenol.
There’s no promise for tomorrow,
There’s only today.
He can’t control this, and neither can I.
Our only hope for peace comes from You.
