Comment on this article

by Karen Hughes Briggs

I have been deeply in love
For more than a decade now
Deeply in love never goes away
When it is torn away it hurts achingly
Not desperately
When you hurt desperately
It hurts horribly briefly
Then goes away
We know it won't last long
So it is easier to deal with
I however
Hurt achingly and
It won't hurt like a new wound
After the first bit
How long is the first bit
It might lessen pain-wise
But it will never go away
I began as what I was born
With Andy I became more
Was more until my TBI
Now being as much
As I was when I met him
And since that is less than
Andy chooses to accept
I will never be complete again
