Set: Whilst Will was still wooing the women
I watched you from across the room. Sometimes I wonder how you have the
nerve to do what you do. How you can flaunt your latest conquest before my
very eyes. How you can look at her the same way that you used to look at me.
I turned away and sighed. I knew how. I let you. I gave you permission to
live your life without me beside you. And your life needed women.
Lots of women.
I allowed you to run in and out of my life as though it were a game, only
you never really noticed that I had stopped playing.
A long time ago.
I heard your sensuous laughter and knew with the next ten minutes, you
would both stand and leave the bar, arm in arm, with one destination in
Bed. Your bed.
Not our bed, but your bed. I wonder how many women have been there since I
last succumbed to your charms?
Why did my liaison‘s always end in disaster and your always victory? That
was a question I thought I would never have an answer to.
Because you don‘t love me enough. Isn‘t it ironic that I have enough love
for both of us but its not enough.
It‘ll never be enough.
