It’s time to tell the truth, time to own up to what’s real, this man left me for another, no longer cares about how I feel. Remained in denial for months, still believing the shallow lies he told, locked in the same old pattern, thought he’d love me until I grew old. Made promises that he would never leave, would be by my side forever, he sold his soul to the devil, walked away with her, thinking things would be much better. I look myself in the mirror, getting older as we speak, can’t stop the aging process just because he is at his peak. He thinks younger is better, all firm and perky and tight, never realizing he is getting older, one day he’ll see the light. Nothing is forever, change continues to occur; this breakup needed to happen, even though this pain seems impossible to endure. My truth is understanding that things will never be the same; abandonment is no joke; it brings a lot of shame. To speak the words, ”he left,” is hard with the lump in my throat, taking my self-esteem with him, never thought to look back, to see if I’d choked. The denial is subsiding now; the truth is settling in, there is another woman now to entertain his every whim. When will he understand that relationships don’t happen overnight, flings and casual sex get old and he has paid the ultimate price. What goes around comes around, the old adage predicts, I won’t be waiting in the wings, when his world crumbles and nothing can be fixed. I’m weary of this burden, this story has gotten old, turn the page for a new chapter, get ready for my new life, that is about to unfold.

Writing has been my passion for more than twenty years. I've started more novels than I care to remember. The art of writing is what inspires me and not so much the end results. My travel throughout the United States and other countries has inspired my creative writing style and continues to motivate me to share my adventures. I am a visionary and always believe if I can see it, I can be it! Finding this website was clear determination on my part, as I have something to offer through my writing and I am ready to pursue my dream. I currently live in Surprise, Arizona and working diligently to finish my first short story.
