How can I leave my marriage?
I love you.
I cant explain how I feel about you.
But for better or worse,
This is the only thing I've ever known.
The universe carved out a special place for me right here.
A great family and friends.
And I cant leave that.
I refuse to.
I refuse to be one of those bubbling fools,
Who let their hearts dictate and rule their lives.
I refuse to put myself in a place where once again I am at the mercy of others.
No, I control my destiny.
I control my fate.
I must protect the ones I love.
I must take care of those who depend on me.
I wish it were another place or another time.
But its not.
So I will take it for what it is.
An opportunity to love.
