I just passed that gas station…

You know?… the one where they pumped

my gas for me when I was called away

by the urgency in your voice.

The wind and traffic did little

to drown out the pain and anger;

but what slew me then and today

does still…. were the tears.

Twinkling emeralds should never be

wet with such humiliation….

He was leaving you for her!

And I just couldn’t wrap my head around

how this was all going to work out.

Could I ever be all that you needed?

Well I guess we got it sorted cause

that was nearly eleven years ago,

and today you are my whole world…

  1. Dani,

    This is a true love poem! It is about true love that began in uncertainty and now thrives in profundity.

    Thanks for sharing this and I hope there are many more words and many more years beyond eleven.
