One Blink, Quick Sigh

Memories of bliss filled our chapters.
We shared smiles and some innocent fun.
One blink, a quick sigh, and the book was done.
A perfect little example of a story gone wrong.

You see—some people feel the rain, others just get wet.
I was no exception, not prepared for the rest.
You convinced me of our unique story,
Instead you decided I was only temporary.

I used to live with hate in my heart,
The haunt of regret played a huge part.
But the tears were just part of the process,
Pure happiness remains a work-in-progress.
When one feels lost, the heart will find the words,
“No regrets, child, just lessons learned.”

And to you,
I owe a Thank You. I really do.
Ever heard the phrase—
“Some people are rich, all they have is money.”
Well let me keep our broken record,
Financial wealth can be ugly.
There’s a reason for everything, I’m reminded.
A certain je ne sais quoi.
I’ve grown, so have you,
From our relationship’s flaw.
But let me just say—

You see—some people feel the rain, others just get wet.
I was no exception, not prepared for the rest.
You convinced me of our unique story,
Instead you decided I was only temporary.

Years later and I’m doing more than fine.
Having traveled the world solo
Or friends by my side.
Dreams manifested into my own reality,
With goals that continue to inspire me.
And though I wouldn’t change this fate we were given,
Still doesn’t change the chapters of our old story.
Because one blink, a quick sigh, and our book was done.
A perfect little example of a story gone wrong.

Because you see, I was no exception.
Some people feel the rain, others just get wet.
Foolish me with wings of innocence, I never predicted a rain so intense.
But no regrets here just lessons learned, and rather
The brightest of rainbows appear from the greatest stormy weather.

 

 


P.S. My added thoughts:
Writing is another form of adventure. When I write, I’m elsewhere. I’m sucked into the moment, memory, or place I’m describing. In this case, I reached into an aspect of my past and turned it into a series of words.

Cheers to those who are able to find adventure anywhere they go.

xoxo, Jane
