He has come once again, 

To take my children out. 

But this time, 

It’s for them to see his new kid. 

The (My) children are excited. 

They want to see the kid. 

They like babies. 

I’m scared they’ll leave me

To be with him

Despite him leaving us,

And as much as I feel blood thinking it,

He has been a good father. 

And the children love him. 

I see as they turn to gauge my expression,

To know what to reply to their dad. 

They love him, 

But they also don’t want to hurt me. 

I school my face into a smile,

And watch as they turn to their dad

Smiling big,

Enthusiastic to meet his new child,

While I’ll be here

Unable to not torture myself

With the images of my children,

Caressing the child of the woman

That destroyed my home. 

That took my man. 

That sucked everything I had worked for in our marriage. 

That makes me think I’m not enough,

And that I’ll never be. 

Holding back the tears, 

I watch as the children go out the door first,

As he looked at me for a while, 

Looking like he wanted to apologize, 

But then only nodded at me,

And left.
