Why can’t people be honest?
Why must they use and abuse a true and honest love?

“I love you. Always.”
So she moves to be with him.
So many miles, to a new home.
Far from the home she has only ever known.

She is supportive of him.
Of his decision to serve his country.
She still respects him for that.
But only for that.

An electronic “Dear Jen” letter
No explanation.
Just that he is no longer happy.
Her heart breaks.

She realizes that she believed again
She tried again for the true love
She had taken her fractured heart out of the jar
Gave it to him, someone new…the glue finally dry.

But now, it breaks again
Pieces everywhere
So powerful that her chest feels like it will explode
All she can do is cry

She must move again
To a home she never really knew
To the arms of her mother
The only one who can comfort her

As time goes by
Her heart begins to heal
The anger dissipates
The tears are fewer

She doesn’t give up on love
It is out there somewhere
But this isn’t her time to have it
She still has much healing to do
