As he told her things
Things that removed her from his life so callously as though they had not been married for over ten years
As he told her of her replacement
He did not love her anymore
He had not loved her for a long time.
As the chair scrapped the floor
As he stood to finally walk away from their marriage
Uncaring of how scarring his words were
Unaware of having shredded her soul with his words
Tears shinning in her eyes like diamonds adorned them
It was all a woman of that time could do
Offer pretty tears as her world crumbled.
