    "conversation with the other woman, in the mirror"

    ..after all,
    will he believe us
    if we tell him
    the best way to
    show him how much
    we love him

    is to leave him?

    .in any case,
    could we stop holding
    on to our hopes because
    we're so damned good
    at intellectualizing
    this situation?

    it's a no-winner

    and that's a no brainer...

    but what about the incessant
    beating of this heart, part?

    .well,
    he won't like it ~
    not even a little bit,
    though he'll know he
    wasn't played,
    not after all the happy joy
    we made....

    .sooo,
    what are we going to say
    to him that I won't regret
    for life? ~

    I can't keep ignoring my own
    self-pride, nor disrepsect
    his wife...

    hadassah,

    you speak the experiences of many sistas. Very sad realities involved here. Bittersweet, no doubt. Loved the perspective; in the mirror. Tight!

    Thank you
