Of Course I Understand (Written September 6, 2014)

Of Course I Understand


Understand? Of course I understand.

I’d do the same thing

If I were in your shoes.


I don’t blame you, I blame myself.

I’ve tried very hard to stop

But I can’t. It’s just something


I have to do. It doesn’t mean

I don’t love you. Not in the least.

You mean everything to me,


And the children. I’m very sorry

This is happening. Whatever I can do

To make it easier I’ll do. The main thing,


For now, is to protect the children.

They really don’t need to know,

I hope you can agree to that. Later,


When they’re older, I’ll explain.

I’ve let you down, terribly, I know.

I don’t know what else to say.
