“Lying is done with words and also with silence.” -Adrienne Rich

wedding ringthe indentation left by a ring, worn for 20 years, is almost gone
there are no scars that others can see
only those who see my heart can see the scars i bear
for a love lost or maybe never really was

i brought him into my life
i was young and not ready to emotionally attach to anyone
not ready to give myself – mind, body + soul to anyone
not even one who seem to love me so much
because in my heart, i knew
i knew he wasn’t capable of deep love
of connecting with another to become one
he too had been hurt
it shows every day as he numbs himself with alcohol

i should have left years ago
but i didn’t
i wasn’t strong enough
i didn’t trust myself enough that i could do it alone
and so i stayed
i stayed in silence
lying by omission
not letting him know that it was over before it ever began
