repeat, after me 

in 1990, we said “i do.” 

you didn’t. 
i did. 

for several years i vowed 
to lie here another day.
to make you stay. 
to make you pay.

to get away. 

ibid.

ibid.

ibid.

    You are writing some pieces that are crushing my heart. I always think you are over the pain of this, but who ever could be? These pieces from that time period are knife stabs to my stomach. So, good job?

    I love you. ❤

    P.S. I wasn’t familiar with “ibid”! That worked so well!!!
