A conversation where my expectations were not realised. Where I learned once again the I can no longer expect the same things from him. So the anger flares.
I want to lash out with my poison tipped pain. But I take 5 minutes to let it subside. It ebbs away…doesn’t completely disappear. It can return at any time.
A conciliatory message later and I sense compassion. It’s all I really want from him now. Now that it’s over.
My heart, full of all the emotions that have coursing through it these past few months, is (temporarily) at peace.
