A tear


It was over an year now. The days of hoping and praying seemed wasted.

On one hand, she had betrayed her family and herself by committing to something that was called adultery. On the other, she had known pure happiness and peace even if it were short lived.


But now ? The one who had given her so much happiness was moving on with his life. And though at the face of it, she was reunited with her family, nothing was the same as before.


Is there a hope of happiness for her ? Are her feelings worth anything anymore ?

"she had know pure happiness and peace even if it were short lived."

- reminded me so much of 'Bridges of Madison County'. That was one story were 'adultery'(i prefer to call it love) was portrayed so beautifully.
Many a time it is easy to brand something as black or white forgetting the different hues of grey that are there in between.
Thanks for dropping by and leaving that message.

'Benton's Row' had a similar story, but there was no guilt involved.

Sad that somebody should be in such a situation...

She may not want to stay with her family anymore, or she might find it easier to continue living with them, not as before at first but eventually back to where she was.

I have seen families can and do survive 'betrayals' like this.

Deepa I think in the end life goes on.sometimes life is unfair.families do forgive and even though we feel the guilt, for the most part families do not.The happiness and peace that was felt even if it was a short time, endures forever.

Hi .... looks like u r still in despair!

From ur words, I gather u r a lady (i might be wrong about the gender) .... I know it is hard to accept that some1 who loved u so much can forget u ... but i think it is so with most guys .... again, i might be v wrong ....

i used to judge every1 by the standards i use for myself, used to think all think like me .. and hence used to think I'd never be forgotten, but I realise I was living a fool's dream.

You may never be forgotten, but the 1 u r so sincere about might cease to be sincere about u.

i hope u havent called yet

And yes there is hope and the feelings are worth a lot...
