• A Lifetime Ago

    I don’t know why it always came back around to you. I used to think it was fate, but I think it was me wanting to believe in you. No matter the odds or obstacles I had this unyielding loyalty to you. You didn’t deserve it though. I know you know that too. You used to call me your dream girl. If that’s how you treat your dream girl, I’d hate to be any other woman in your life.

    This is the first time in my life I really let go of you and for the first time I’m genuinely happy. Go figure. There are people in this world who just aren’t good for you. That was you for me. It took someone else fulfilling the types of promises you made to me, to make me see the light. Thank you for that. Without the pain I went through with you, I would never have appreciated or known what real, true love is.

    I don’t know what happened to you during the time we were apart, but the way you treated me when we got back in touch triggered something in me towards the end. You saw it happening. Our interactions really screwed me up. You hurt me and played with my emotions until I genuinely grew to dislike you. You are a really selfish person. You have a darkness in you that is truly scary and evil. I know I’m not the only one who sees it. I gave you the benefit of the doubt so many times, when I had all the answers all along – in my gut.

    You haven’t grown emotionally. You never do what you say you’re going to do. And for the first time the only thing I have faith in pertaining to you is knowing you never will. All those times you took for granted? Those were the last times. Even if “fate” intervened and made us cross paths again I can sincerely tell you now, that I would walk in the opposite direction. Lesson learned better late than never.

      Sometimes we have to go through a little bit of pain and darkness to appreciate the light. Natures worst and best teacher.

      I could have written this word for word. Thank you author for saying everything I would’ve said. 🙂
