I can’t stop wondering why you ran away. I think I know, but the thought hurts. You still love me but are ashamed to admit what happened. You left me, went back to your old boyfriend and got hurt again, didn’t you? It strangles my heart every time I imagine you with him. L.L.
Until this moment,
I had not realized
that someone could
break your heart twice,
along the very same fault lines.
