My pathetic story
by Michael Maliff
My wife of 20 years left me 2years ago after I discovered she was having an affair with a guy at work. The pain was unbearable. The night of my discovery I attempted suicide by taking a handful of pills, cant remember right now what they were but when I woke up 2 days later in the hospital they told me I almost died. In the hospital my wife said we could stay together and that she loved me but upon my release she was gone 2 days later, she moved in with the other man.
The grief was almost more than i could take
I would sit on our bed sniffing a bottle of her perfume.
I would write her poetry that I never sent.
I would drive by her new home and cry.
One of the worst days was the first Christmas. I didnt want Christmas to come, I didnt want a tree. But when I drove psst my wife's new home with her boyfriend.they had a big fat tree in the front window. I lost it. Crying and sobbing like a fool.
Another great day was our anniversary when she drove past me on the back of his motorcycle.
I can say it does get better but I still miss her and I cry about 1 a week. I love you Maureen.
