|One man's only form of relief from the pain of his wife's extra marital affair|
I HAVE TO GO WHEN I CALLED YOU ON THE PHONE I KNEW YOU WERE NOT ALONE THE INFLECTION IN YOUR VOICE GAVE YOU AWAY. ALL THE THINGS I HAD TO SAY SUDDENLY WENT AWAY AS MY HEART FLOODED WITH GRIEF. FOR A MOMENT I WAS SURE I COULDN'T, WOULDN'T ENDURE BUT I COMPOSED MYSELF LONG ENOUGH TO SAY,. I'LL BE HOME FROM MY TRIP TOMORROW DO NOT SHOW REMORSE OR SORROW MY LOVE IS LIKE A FIREPLACE COAL ONCE BURNED, FROM ASHES WILL NOT RETURN. I KNOW NOT THE CAUSE, ONLY THE EFFECT AND I CERTAINLY DIDN'T DETECT WHAT WOULD PROMPT YOU TO THIS INDESCRETION . I'M SORRY ABOUT MY INFLEXIBLE STATE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH SPITE OR HATE I JUST CAN'T LIVE WITH THIS PAIN YOU HAVE IMPOSED. SO GOODBY AND I WISH YOU WELL THANK YOU FOR THE HAPPINESS I'VE FELT AND FOR LETTING ME LOVE YOU ALL THESE YEARS. I HAVE TO GO BEFORE THE PAIN BECOMES TOO MUCH TO BEAR I DON'T THINK I COULD HANDLE IT IF I THOUGHT YOU DIDN'T CARE. copyright 1999 firstname.lastname@example.org Tweet
