My Life (post divorce and empty nest) in Sonnets

Original Contemporary Poetry by author, Jean Parr


I broke a promise in monochrome
He had me followed, twice
My crime was to visit a male friend at his home
My punishment was to have my Fiance threaten to shoot himself in front of me; I need serious advice

Our therapist to the rescue, such a good listener
She talked him off the ledge
But I still feel like a prisoner
Trust is a tenuous thread of hope, a pledge

Now every time I don't answer his call, I feel like I will be followed
Am I that untrustworthy?
One of my best attributes is loyalty, now I just feel hollow
I know it's definitely not my desirability

I am innocent of infidelity
So, why does he still feel a sense of insecurity
