My Fiance...a story

There he was,
he looked as fine as the last time I saw him.
My, that blond hair and those blue eyes.
Oh, he still makes me swoon.

He saw me from across the room
and started walking toward me.
That swagger of his,
that same confidence he always had,
yes, it was still there.

Oh my, what would I say to him.
Had it really been a decade since
he left me at the altar?
Yes, but still…
I wanted him so.

Just one little word from him and…
Here he comes closer!

Hello, been a long time.
Let me introduce you to my husband.

Having It All?

I am dragging my bag a little bit slower today.
It seems so much heavier than the day before.
Why wouldn’t it be? After all, I hit the mother load of dumpsters, cleaned the place out before the rest of them got their grubby hands on it. 

 I am going slower. 

Maybe it’s because I keep hearing his voice ringing in my ears from all the times he slapped me. 

“You could have had it all!” he’d say.

God, how I despise him! Oh, how I did love him…at least, in the beginning.
I am on the streets now and no longer afraid.

I am free.
