Haunted October #2

Things don’t happen all at once 

You don’t grow old all at once 

It happens slowly 

And then it just is 

And that’s what hurts

It was every day 

All the days 

You put that thing off 

Until 

Here you are 

Looking at yourself in the mirror 

Kingdoms  don’t fall in a day 

love doesn’t die in a day

“I want a divorce.”

I said it first 

We both had been thinking it 

I think she was angry 

Because I said it out loud before she could 

But there it was 

The all at once
