We find two lovers embroiled in a heated discussion. I’m not sure of the circumstances that brought them here, but the words came to me. I was in the shower when the woman began screaming, tell her the truth! I’m learning that there are so many degrees of love. So many ways to turn your back on happiness. When we fall, we fall hard. And every time we do, it’s more difficult to get back up. We must though. We must get up, and brush the dust from our hearts. Remove the shards of glass too. Sweep them into a pile and discard them. Hopefully the next time we love, it will be forever.

I miss you so much.
If you did, you’d tell her the truth.
I can’t, you know that.
I know nothing, but what is between you and me. Tell her that you love me.
I love you more than I’ve ever loved anyone in my life.
Do you believe in the strength of that love?
Then tell her the truth. I am not the reason you faltered, I was merely the catalyst.
What would you have me do?
Tell her that you love me. Own what you feel. Don’t lose me, don’t leave me. Please, don’t let me drown.
