The Transformation from Light to Darkness

I’m all alone, lost in my sorrow…
It’s been a long and bumpy road
That she and I have traveled
When you’re both married to another
That’s just the way it is

We’ve never lacked for love or passion
We’ve never not known dedication or patience
There’s never been a time when she wasn’t enough for me
Nor I for her

We have lived the dream
Together we found far more love than we ever knew apart
Together we experienced such joy and fellowship and tenderness
To the very point of it being almost unbelievable, too good to be true

Yet real and true it was
This love for one another
The only glitch was our spouses
And the complications that being married to another provided

We knew, almost from the very start, and without question
Who we would choose should we have a “do over” in life
But that is not the real world
You cannot turn back the clock

The season has been hard, almost unbearable at times
Such love and passion was never meant to be held at bay
Yet holding back the tide
Is the very thing we were called to do

Thus began the transformation, attempting against all odds
To try and turn a perfectly pleasing love relationship
Into the more appropriate friendship
Since the marriages were still intact

I thought we were there, that we had done it pretty successfully
It took some time, months actually,
And though not without its challenges
I thought we could do it…or so I thought

And then all hell broke loose
Something snapped, I do not know what
But, in a matter of hours it seems,
It went from all good to all bad

Tears stream down my cheeks as I write this
I have lost my one and only
I am not your honey,”
Were her last words to me

Yes, from light to darkness
To having just enough to daily get by
To being swallowed whole in sorrow and grief
I swear, I don’t know what to do
The one thing on this whole earth that I want is now gone…
