The Life That Should Have Been
by Gina  Renee

She sits in her favorite chair
Pondering her choices.
She has loved him forever. 
But as all great loves have ever been,
It's complications abound.
Her choices so long ago,
Have become her greatest foe.
She has taken the ultimate leap,
She has put her heart on the line. 
She has asked the question,
And fears the answer.
She sits twisted and knotted,
Screaming inside,
Putting on a show for the world to see.
She silently yearns to see him and know,
To remind him of her kiss,
And her promise of sweetness.
Comfort and desire,
Soul mates are rare.
How could they continue to ignore
The fate before their eyes.
The obviousness of what is meant to be.
For nothing else is as true as this love.
It has never faded,
But strengthened with each passing year.
Does he think her unfair,
The question she poses.
But she knows unfairness too.
It is in a stolen moment,
A chance meeting,
A goodbye for months on end.
The dance of lovers,
The deceipt of lives.
One day this must all end,
So they can live again,
The life that should have been.
