Exit Stage Left

After a few decades, five children and a hefty mortgage payment; he had to leave. He was not the type to walk away; but to stay meant a loss of sanity. Things had been on edge for a while. He thought it was just a phase he had to endure; part of the marital contract. The decision was painful and the separation from everything he had hoped for -unbearable.

He takes walks by the sea now. Trying to ease his mind but the memories come to him like the waves touching his feet. They cannot be denied or erased. His dear friend tells him that "it is a stage he must walk through". While her voice is reassuring; his brain refuses to process anything but grief. Common sense sounds abnormal to him.“Make a plan, set some goals” she begs of him. For now all he can do is wake up and begin again; feeling the tears roll down his cheek.
