Ghosted Love

I never got to meet you.
You never got to hold me.
I was a fool
falling for you.
You were so confused.
Wife
children
how could I compete?
Your voice
I heard
I felt to my core
dreaming of days to come
when I would be yours.
Feel your lips.
Feel your hands.
Feel you.
I knew with certainty
that this would fail
whatever it is that we had
and again 
proven right
realizing I have no recourse
no tears can I shed
in remorse.
It is not a wonder
family for you
always shall come first
recognize that I can.
What I fell for 
a fantasy
a dream
never to be achieved
realized
I must accept.
I fell in love with a dream.
I mourn a ghost
for I knew you not.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
