Drowning

Posted on Sat, Oct 2, 2010 at 5:42 PM

I resented you for so long and now that too is indifference. I long to wake and not see your face or hear your voice. For eight years I've kept to myself and now I long for warm eyes to look upon me, feel arms around me, and connect with another.

My parents tell me no, divorce would be shameful. Friends say I probably need a vacation. I just want to get away from all that reminds me of you. I don't want to be bitter, resentful, and feeling robbed of innocence and happiness. Twenty-three years of my life with you-maybe genuinely happy for two out of the twenty-three. I want to empty the joint accounts of my half and file but I'm so scared, I'm so afraid, I sometimes think if you died I would be born again. —Scarred
