This is a poem about the choices we make repeatedly when it comes to affairs of the heart. Many times we know the truth but the disconnect between the mind and heart can lead one astray.

 

Wondering why

I allowed you to hurt me over and over again

ignoring the signs

burying my emotional intelligence         

caught up in a rat race

neither one of us would ever win

this heartbreaking must end

now I’m in recovery

because I thought I had a friend

 

-Andrea J Williams
