In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Re-springing Your Step.”
It was a period of a few months in early to mid 2013. Soon to be Ex and I had rekindled our relationship and were in a period of limerence, that periods where we were infatuated with each other. In that brief period of time, he paid more attention to me than he had in our previous 19 years of marriage. He’d watch me exercise. He’d tell me how sexy I am. He’d listen to me and talk to me. He’d make sweet, sweet love to me – sometimes twice a day.
My GOD, it was intoxicating.
Alas, it wasn’t real. Or at least not real enough to withstand the test of time.
You ask, what was it that had such a positive effect on me. Attention. I was starved for his attention.
