You look deep into my eyes and quickly turn away

In the heat of the moment I pay it no mind

Not knowing that later I will be swimming in a sea of regret

As I walk our neighborhood streets

Everyone whispers as I pass by

I’m clueless about the reason for their snickering

The smile I wore when I headed out the door

Was clearly dissipating with each step I took

So hurt without knowing my mistake

I naturally began to hang my head low

Upon nearing our front door my best friend begs me not to enter

I told her there was nothing to fear that all is safe here

I heard her murmur under her breath

“But your heart isn’t”

I took a deep breath as I began to turn the key

For an unknown reason my heart began to race

My hand was shaking and my eyes were twitching

I couldn’t understand the sudden anxiety my heart was undertaking

I Slowly opened the door

I could hear soft music bouncing off the walls

I blindly followed the sounds

Until I found myself outside our bedroom door

Impulsively I just pushed the door open

Shocked at the sight of what I’d seen

I dropped unconscious to the floor

Only to wake in the hospital ward

My best friend saying

“I tried to warn you, at least twice before”

Your man has lied

And it’s all come to ahead

On the surface he pretends to love you

So you wouldn’t leave him

And he could take you for everything

But now the shoes on the other foot

He’ll be leaving rather quickly

Leaving everything behind

Now you can again lift your head

And wear your smile
