Each week, I post three words. You write something using the words.
Then come back and post a link to the contribution with Mr. Linky (but please, link to the exact post, not your blog, by clicking on the exact post title and paste it to Mr. Linky below). As always, there's no hard-and-fast rule that you have to post on Wednesday.

This week's words:
Affair; Expectation; Free
Tell The Truth
This is going to
hurt, that's what we said when we
began the affair.
Keeping the secret
stuffed down as we could,
nothing but all in
was going to work. The next
two years, what it took
to get us both free.
Would I do that again, love?
Oh fuck yes, love, yes!

I will say this is nothing but the truth, so help me. What I mean of course, would I do that again, if this were 1998 again and me who I was then, she who she was and all the same, the choice would never in a million years be different. I will never in all my life left to me try to justify this thing to anyone. That is respectfully none of your business, no offense, I hope. I paid several steep prices over the two years we were together. I was enough of an outlaw then that this gesture fit my life like a spiritual glove. I am enough of an outlaw now that all stays that way today.
This period of my life, 1998-2001, is one of those...a bucket list item, so to speak. If I had held back, I would have always been a little sick at heart, wondering what might have happened with that special regret of the coward. I had loved that woman from the distance since 1984. I knew but did not know what would happen, if you understand me. I so wanted to ride off into the sunset with that woman, all the time knowing the folly of it. Thank you, Shining One.
What happened next was even better. You know who you are, my love! Now I'm old. No regrets.
