wide eyed and bushy tailed,
once upon a time.

The hills became higher,
mountains.

free
climbing
now.
Every
hand hold,
along 
     the 
        way-
A betrayal
of the deepest
of me.

Game over

Embers
spread across the tiled floor.
Our relationship…
Scanning pictures,
to the trash
you go.
Lying,
in the trash.
Embers tossed in,
‘Permanently Delete?’
[OK]

Paper is the traditional first wedding anniversary gift.
Many may think this is a monetary reflection. However, paper is so much more.

Paper is resilient
sturdy
forgiving
flexible.
The foundation
and keeper
of history.

Bringer of hope
peace
Love.
The chronologer of a great story.

So,
like the cherished book,
such is our marriage,
full of life,
with sorrows,
excitement,
joy,
hope.
most of all,
Strength.
Strong so that nothing,
Nothing
Can tear it apart.

Promises in the dark,
like crimes in the night
whispered ever so softly,
“I love you.”

Look into my eyes
and tell me,
show me
You love me.

Show me your soul’s mind
no hiding in the night.
I want to hear your soul tell me,
“I love you,”
“I’ll never leave you,”
“I’ll always be here.”

Look into my eyes
when you whisper
those lies.

I want to see truth in those eyes,
I want to see a loving smile,
I want to see you plunge the dagger into me
when your heart speaks the truth
and I see the passing of your love
and hear the closing of the door
and feel the coldness of our dying embrace.

My fallen angel.
Look into my eyes
when you whisper
those lies.
