‘Twenty-Year Itch’

Trust Me: It’s Not Your Fault!

A sample from Book 6

 Twenty-Year Itch
 
there's a glitch
in this marriage-is-forever niche
no one says it
when selling their pitch
they just say―
marriage is a gift
no more ifs
no more endless cliffs
but it's all a myth
for there's a ditch
from which
comes the switch
where love drifts
lies are rich
truths are a bitch
change is swift
 
heed this warnings' monolith
the twenty-year itch
comes from this sudden twitch
egotistical snitch
a labyrinth
a deceptive clinch
leaving you adrift
lost to miff
without even one
understanding flinch

(October 30, 2013)—[‘Twenty-Year Itch’ was written May 23, 2013.] Since this goes with my stupid post today, I thought I’d share. I wrote this towards the middle of this year after reading about and experiencing the ‘Twenty-Year Itch’.

It is interesting how much is written about this and how no one actually talks about it. I’m gonna talk. You know me. Go on hold it against me. What do I have to lose? Absolutely nothing. Life is not all negative, but in order to move to the light, you first have to see things for what they are. You have to talk about it. You can’t keep it buried, pretend it’s not happening and all is okay.

When your partner decides to leave, when the blaming starts, the hollering and screaming starts…remember: It’s not your fault. They are yelling and blaming to make you look bad, to covet themselves. You are yelling back and blaming because you know the truth and you don’t understand what and why they are doing it.

Mine spread rumors that I forced him to leave because I wanted to be with another man. It wasn’t true. But it doesn’t matter the truth because those who do have this 20-year itch are very manipulative and can easily turn everything on you.

Believe the Lord is with you. He is. And know that when you meet Him, He will question your actions, your reactions. As long as you have truth, you will have no problems giving Him the answers. The other party, well, that’s another story that you don’t have to worry about because it’s no longer your problem.

We’re survivors of the 20-year itch. Just think about it this way. They’ll find another to swindle while you find a true heart. They’ll never actually find what they think they are looking for because you WERE their TRUE heart.
