You and I were one and the same.
I felt your beats, as you smiled at my breath
you wanted me to feel life, and
I played every game possible.
Respect, love and compassion
you filled in every pore of my being.
You promised me that you would
hold my hand, and let me reach giddy heights
A month ago, you betrayed me.
You let me fall, lose my dignity
not caring that I did all you’d asked me to do;
I had walked with you for miles
Played tennis and golf, and sweated
while you hammered the drums in my chest
encouraging me, cheering me on
until last month.
You clammed up!
Locked one of the doors and blocked
my entrance into your private chambers.
You gave me a heart attack……literally!
Such betrayal from a true and trusted soul mate!!
