Is two am, I can’t believe I’m still awake, I hear the door knob turning, I get up as fast as I can trying to find out who it is.

Scared I walk towards the door not knowing who will be on the other side.

I hear, "is me please open the door".

My eyes could not believe what I was seeing, outside my door it was him.

"Sweetie please, I need to talk to you. I’m so sorry for how bad I treated you I want to make things right".

I didn’t mean to say all those things, I never meant to hurt you like that.

Get are crazy driving here in this kind of weather, wait here let me get you a towel.

As he was drying himself, all this questions are going through my mind, why is he here? Why after two years have gone by he wants to talk?


"Baby I came here to see you because I can not live with this regret anymore".

That night when we say goodbye it was a mistake I never wanted to let you go.

I don’t know what I was thinking.

I was so confused and lost. You know how bad things were going for me.

I had lost my job, I was losing custody of my daughter and the place I was staying was giving me 30 days to move out.

He was trying to explain so many things,trying to find the words that would make me understand why he was here. As I sat down with a cup of tea on my hands and still shaking after having him next to me after two years.

I find the streght and repeat to him the exact words he had told me two years ago...........


you said you where moving on that you didn’t love me, that you had found the love of your life, you told me she had a career and that she was going to get you out of the situation you were in.

I remember you said to me, you and I will never work.

Your exact words to me were" you have not much to offer, other than your love for me and a very kind heart, but that will never get me where I want to be in life".

I found what need and  is not you.


Remember how much I begged you not to leave, how much I cry trying to make you understand that she was only using you and now you are here in front of me after all this time?

"Yes, I came here because I realize that you are the only person that understands me, you already know when I’m hurting when I’m sad, I don’t have to say a word you know me".

I’m afraid to say you know me more than I know my self sometimes.

Do you even know how much I cry for you, how many nights I spent waiting for you to come home, feeling lonely feeling empty". And today here you are, why?

"I miss you, I miss the way you always made me feel.

With you I felt safe and at peace,next to you is where i belong".


I’m tired of always running always looking for what may be better out there.

please say something , what’s on your mind?

What you want me to say?

That I’m happy to see you that I’m dying to be in your arms that I can’t wait to feel your touch? "I don’t know, just say something, your silence is killing me"……… be continued.
