I am more than breath and bones!

“I am more than breath and bones!” was my contribution to the Breath and Bones Writing Prompt Challenge on Braveandrecklessblog.  Now that it has been officially on the above site I can now share it with you guys.  Hope you like it. 🙂

“I am more than breath and bones,” said the mistress to her lover

A married man but that did not bother her

She was in love and although he promised his heart to another

She hoped they would still be together

…………………………………………………………………………………….

“I could never leave my wife. She is my bread and butter,” said the shameless man to his lover

Little did he know that his mistress planned a show

And now his bread and butter” would finally know

That her gold digging husband had to go

……………………………………………………………………….

As she hid in the mistress’s closet

Her heart was breaking and her eye lids failing

To hold back the tears

Because her ears now have confirmation of her fears

……………………………………………………………………….

She could not hear the truth anymore

And boldly emerged from the closet doors

Being a lady, she kept her dignity

And chose not to voice any profanity

………………………………………………………….

She paid the mistress for her information

And advised her husband

Of their immediate separation

………………………………………………………………………

“I am more than breath and bones. I’m your husband Mr. Jones.” said the man to his wife

“You should have thought of that before you lay on your back. Now we’re getting a divorce and that is that!” said his wife in a firm tone.

Her focus now turned on getting her lawyer on the phone.

Moving On

Moving on

Often easier said than done

Until you are the one

Feeling the pain in your chest

As your heart aches

And your mind races

Playing over and over in your head

Things said and done

………………………………………………………

You can’t sleep or get any rest

Because the person you loved

And you thought loved you

Decided to move on without you in their life

That is a tough pill to swallow

But acceptance eventually comes but it takes time

…………………………………………………………………….

You’ll be angry, sad, depressed and sometimes just

Damn confused about why and how this could even happen

I can tell you it gets better

After you cry your eyes out

Maybe even give a good scream and shout

………………………………………………………………….

For each of us the recovery time varies

But you CAN and WILL overcome this

You can’t see it now but it is for the BEST

One day at a time, make the decision

To be your best self

………………………………………………………………

The brokenness you’re feeling won’t last

Smile even when you don’t feel like it

Talk to someone,

The worst thing you could do is shut everyone out

You will love and be loved again

You will smile, laugh and create even better memories

You will be happy again

 

The love of your life is still out there

If you give up now, how is he or she going to find YOU 🙂
