I'm a single mom with two great kids living near Dallas, Texas. This is my life; day to day things that are probably only important to me. This is my record of my ups, my downs and the road that I've taken along the way. For whatever reason YOU'RE here, I hope you find something you can enjoy and/or relate to. God bless.

I heard him sigh as he walked away,
his hands balled into fists.
I knew that it would be the last time I'd see him,
but I couldn't say a word to stop him.

I had loved him completely.
I'd loved him with all that was in me.
For the first time in my life
I'd let all my defenses fall...or so I had thought.

Because on that day when he asked,
on that day that he promised,
I said no
and I watched him walk away.

His sigh echoed my heartbreaking.
His clenched fists mirrored my distress.
But I couldn't say a word to stop him.
My fear had set him free.

Hmmmm. This is heart-wrenching. I'm in a quandary about the parts left unsaid and wonder what I can say to you. But I can say this much .... you said no for a reason, and I believe there is a solid foundation for that. It hurts, but you did what you know, at some level, is right for you. Hugs, Kathi.

Thanks for your comment - I'm feeling really good. I have some numbness that came on this summer that comes and goes, but it's not really a problem. I've got plenty of energy and no complaints. :-)

I felt my own heart break reading this.

I've been down this road way too many times.

Beautiful entry.

Johnnie ~ first..NOOOO, lol, wasn't about my ex.

Honestly, it's an intro to a story I'm putting together. It's a bit of several relationships I've let go because of fear. It's one thing to hurt myself...quite another to let someone else get hurt...that kind of attitude.
