Flash 55 Friday


It's been six months
since I left you.
Done with your lies
and empty promises.
Your charms no longer
seduce me, your myths
no longer convincing.
Now I drink in the
rays of the sun, smile
at my children's laughter,
and warm to my lover's touch.
For now I breath in the
decadence of life.......

Today is my six month anniversary in AA. If "you will be amazed before you are halfway through" I am. My life has changed so drastically in the last six months. There are times when that darkness seems so far away and then I will get a subtle reminder of how fast it can come back. Today I am grateful for getting the chance to wake up in the middle of my life, and knowing I can choose to life the other half differently and sober......

(the "lover" of course is my husband just to clarify :)
