Truth

by Keekah

There are days when her scent haunts me. There are days where I am consumed by what happened. Even worse are the days when I dwell on the fact that all my fears in our relationship were too close to the truth. Living with that knowledge is more painful than only thinking the fears were right. Yet, there is solace in the knowledge that it wasn't my imagination. Truth is better than any fantasy you let someone else build for you - even if it is painful to hear sometimes.
