How did you feel when your world blew apart?
Updated: Sep 27, 2019
Jamie's marriage of twelve years to a man who is still in the closet ended without the gift of knowing for certain. When she told people about what she'd found that led her to believe her husband is/was gay, people asked "How did you not know?"
"Bereft" by Robert Frost
Where had I heard this wind before
Change like this to a deeper roar?
What would it take my standing there for,
Holding open a restive door,
Looking downhill to a frothy shore?
Summer was past and day was past,
Somber clouds in the west were massed.
Out in the porch's sagging floor
Leaves got up in a coil and hissed,
Blindly struck at my knee and missed.
Something sinister in the tone
Told me my secret must be known:
Word I was in the house alone
Somehow must have gotten abroad,
Word I was in my life alone,
Word I had no one left but God.
