    It's Been A Long Road

    Always tried to be patient and understanding with a dictatorial contentious spouse. After more than 25 years I'm still standing. Is that a good thing?

    Dear Ex

    How could you move on from me after 3 great years together? And why did it look so easy for you to do. Did I really mean that little to you? Was everything you ever told me a lie? How could you. After promising you wouldnt!

    Resemblance Of Another, Or Is He?

    A complete stranger shouldn’t bother me. I should let go what’s never been mine. Is this real or am I just fooling myself? I know that the recent heartbreak took its toll on me. My first heartbreak. Of course I had no idea how to cope with it. I did not cry, except in cases...
