we broke up and she cared enough to encourage me to find another. at that moment it just seemed impossible.

She's the woman in my life

And she says that I must go.

I can't, you see, I never could

I'm chained by "I don't knows".

-

You must try she said to me

You'll learn like all the rest.

I've tried until I cannot see

I'm too tired to even rest.

-

Can't I be with you a while?

I'm weary in my bones.

Sorry, she said with a smile,

I have my happy home.

-

Then leave me here inside of me

I'll make my head my home.

I will miss you she said to me

I don't want you all alone.

-

Thank you I said honestly,

I guess now I must try.

Yes, she said, you comfort me

Can I call you when I cry?

yes, that's just about exactly how it all happened. we both still loved each other but, because she was abused when she was a child and also now by her husband, she had this emotional safe place inside her head that she had to go to sometimes and she said to me "we have to be friends now, no more touching". she encouraged me to find another so that i might have a chance at being happy (i was terrible at it and very unhappy). but that was 5 years ago. ah well.

That's sweet, in a depressing sort of way. Well written. Zoe x
