Editor’s Note: A new week, a new theme, “tears”.

All the rumors spread like wildfire between our friends, sometimes in hushed tones, and at other times screamed out in “what the hell are you doing” accusations. I could chalk it up to carelessness, to choosing him as a safe place to land, or that I was simply lost in some denial fueled haze, but none of that was the real truth. 

I stayed, I ignored the gossip, I ignored my instincts that went from a whisper to a scream daily, because I loved him. I knew it would end in tears, it did end in tears, but at the time I didn’t care.

I don’t know why he stayed as long as he did. Maybe as a cover for his own truths he was not ready to shed light on, maybe that really was all it was. I’d like to believe there was something more though, at least in feeling if not in desires.
