you didn't know

you didn't know

A Chapter by Lyn Anderson
"

it's okay

"
you didn't know
how to take it
my non-reaction
to your
non-confession.
did I stutter ?
no, because
I already knew.
I felt it,
the weight
was heavy
in your breath.
it's okay, baby.
I understand.
I am not
the only girl
you are not
the only man.
but maybe
together
against
this lonely world
we can stand.

not sure I understand your voice her KL... I guess it depends on what is meant by exclusively... it is often true that we fall in and out of love (as in a relationship/marriage/commitment/etc) and if honest and say so and move on that is one thing, but I guess I do not think that what is known as an "open relationship", that is where you each see and make love with others while you are together with one is not really equal or mutually supportive and beneficial in my opinion.... and especially in a male dominated world it is most of the time women who are damaged and badly hurt...

having said all this, I most likely have once more put my foot in my mouth... maybe next time I will bbq it first...

as long as we both know we are not exclusive...maybe that elusive love can find us...and in the end, we can stand together...

i love the non-reactions.....they say more than reactions usually do.

They think we don't know, but we know. We know even before they know themselves.

P.s. This showed up in my feed. Did you try 'account' settings?
