The love of my life shattered my heart. He moved on quickly while I struggled to find my balance. Now years later friends complain that I am still stuck. Well, they could not be more wrong. Just wait until I tell them that I got married yesterday.

Long After

LONG AFTER I remember the pain, sometimes. The all-consuming passion, rarely. Now hearing your name, nothing. When seeing your face, confusion. Something once so powerful, destroyed. The hurt is gone, relief. Along with the love... regret?
