Letters From The Heart
I’m All Over It …Karen X
You didn’t have the common courtesy to say goodbye – Did you think I would cry. I overheard you talking on the phone as I lay there pretending to sleep. You could have been a little more discrete. It sounds like you’ve found someone that fills that void in your heart. I hope she makes you happy, I hope she understands that marriage is more than just taking care of a man. You’ve got to be strong and take care of yourself cause after 30 years you might find yourself awake in the night with a familiar voice on the phone, hearing him say, I heard you say I love you baby – wait for me – I’ll be there to wake you up in the morning. I’ll kiss those tender lips – just be ready – We’re gonna start a new life away from here just you and me.
I’m too old to fight. My heart is broken and you can’t put the pieces together again, you’re free to go. I went shopping today and the first thing I bought was a mirror. I had to take a good look at myself in order to see what loving you had truly done to me. I see a frail, drained body with tiny wrinkles all in my face. I have to wonder would any man or woman even look at me. I got too comfortable in our relationship. I believed every word you said to me. That you and I would live a long and fruitful life and be together for all eternity. But you forgot to mention that I’d better not get old, lose my hair or lose my teeth. That I’d better stay young and sassy and be ready to pleasure you at your command from your head down to your feet. But life just doesn’t work that way. It’s not the same for you as it is for me. When men grow old, no matter how they look, they’re considered strong and sexy and women of all ages go out of their way to meet.
I consider this a lesson. A lesson that I want to teach. I want every young girl to hear me, stand up now on your feet. Don’t give everything you have to one love, whether it be woman or man. Because there’s always someone out there who thinks they’re better than you. Who thinks that they can make the relationship you once had more than workable but great. You’ve put all the work in, building it brick by brick. Only to make it 30 years, then forced to take defeat. Now you’re watching him walk away, like a thief in the night, he’s gone. I hope she makes you happy, since you’ve decided she’s more of what you need. I don’t get hot and bothered, my parts don’t work so well and I thought that the love we shared was one like a fairy tale. I never thought in a million years you’d leave me, 30 years of my life is gone. I think in my heart and mind, what did I do so wrong. I believed in you, I trusted you and now you’re leaving me all alone. You’re leaving me with no money, how am I supposed to eat. But that’s ok, I’ll make it, I’ll land back on my feet. My mother always told me to put back a little something for yourself. Even if it’s a dollar a week. I’m so glad I listened to you mother, thank you for being there for me. She told me, you’re smart and you’re beautiful and believe it or not, you’re sexy too. No matter how old you live to get, no task is too great for you. You might choose to be alone now, you might be tired of taking care of two. But remember it doesn’t matter, just as long as you take care of you.
So here I am, Steppin out at 60.
