MY MOTHER TOLD ME SOMEDAY WE WILL LAUGH ABOUT THIS



My mother told me someday

we will laugh about this…

These last few days when

inside my soul I was burning.

My mother told me someday

we will laugh about this…

Early mornings when I wake up

and you are on your phone

texting other women while

I remain faithful.

My mother told me someday

we will laugh about this…

My belly growing and the

loss of old friends quietly

hiding my pain of your

adulterous affairs.

My mother told me someday

we will laugh about this…

Tears I decided not to shed

because I don’t want you to

think I am weak yet am

willing to allow you to

believe I am shallow.

My mother told me someday

we will laugh about this…

Knowing that I love you

for more than a minute

for this and all lifetimes.

My mother told me someday

we will laugh about this…

Waterfall of emotions

including the one I choose

not to accept called anger

as it ravages through my

body causing my chest to

hurt while tears roll down my face.

My mother told me someday

we will laugh about this…

Simple things, simpler times

when it was not just you were picked because I didn’t want to be alone at night, but because you are my air.

My mother told me someday

we will laugh about this…

This morning I decided

that someday is today.
