Here I wait
in silent darkness
yesterday's cloud hangs heavy
over today's sunshine.

What was I scared of?
Being phased out no doubt
lost in
constant abrasion
of living in his shadows.

I feel so lost in the dark.
A puzzling melancholy
in the magic of this moment
knowing
someone had taken my place.

Gone but not forgotten, can she ever be truly pushed away ? . I have seen the most anal , patriarchal of men fussing around , tidying their house like a stepford wife !

"today's sunshine" - there is hope...

Kelvin S.M. said...

...quite a revelation to me of an injustice affair...she seems to still carry the classic disposition of women being just a mere accessories to men...no worth beyond bed hours... sad martyrdom mood you evoke here Karen...smiles...
