It is almost three weeks now since we left our homeport. I feel the emptiness throbbing inside me. Day by day I suffer that uncomfortable sensation fluttering inside my stomach and it is bit by bit emotionally killing me. I havenít cried my heart out yet, but deep inside I am bawling no end. Yes, I have come to accept the reality that my job tends to steal me away from my loved ones. I have already accepted the fact that I will miss some important events in my sonís life. I have accepted the painful reality that there are months and months to count and that all those times I would wake up in the morning without my husbandís comforting arms wrapped around my waist. Yes, I have accepted all that. But that acceptance does not make things better. Because no matter how hard I try to look at things sanguinely, no matter how hard I try to obstruct the pain of our separations, it will always hurt. It will always shot that arrow of pain, that stinging, biting, pain to the very foundation of my heart. What do I do? Do I endure? Do I give up to this weakness thatís eating me up? Question, questions. I leave them for now up in the air as I look for answers around.

This reads like a book jacket blurb. Something to entice the reader into breaking the spine of a great novel.

Why is it in collaborations?

Thanks for the comment. I never really expect anybody to read my work, but it seems like there is someone out there after all who actually takes the time to read them. Greatly appreciated, my friend. Anyway, I couldnít figure out why this is under collaborations when I had it posted under blogs
