When love takes you for a ride, what do you do? You come full circle.

Carnival Attraction 


I'm through! 

So done with lies. 

I can't live like this. 

The pain isn't worth it. 

Not when I've come so far 

in defeating the past. 


The dreaded day has arrived. 

Off to find a new path. 

Can't depend on you 

with this growing distance. 

If you won't draw me closer, 

than cut me loose! 


Scenes of misguided betrayal 

float in my head. 

You slept with her! 

I slept with him. 

You don't listen. 

I'm at a loss for words. 


Anguishing anger. 

Disillusioned dreams. 

Lingering lust. 

I don't deserve this! 

I should be treated with respect. 

Instead I'm deemed improper. 


Life goes on. 

The wheels keep turning. 

No time to stop. 

Can't get off this roller coaster 

I've been on for too long. 

Wish I could say I don't love you. 


A new day dawns.
