1. I Was Young, I Didn’t Know Any Better

It was not. We wound up eventually breaking up.

When I was younger, I didn’t really know any better. I forgave her at the time but I was never able to trust her again.

What the hell, let’s drop some truth.

I was 20 or 21 at the time and was in a long term relationship. We had been together for 2 or 3 years so I had some time invested in it which is part of why I was reluctant to break it off.

My ex and I had had a fight. She walked away, I went home. She decided to go drink at my best friends house. Yes, it’s what you think. She drank a bunch and had a threesome with my best friend and his girlfriend.

She called me in the morning and confessed immediately. I went off the deep end. I was shattered. I didn’t know what to do. She kept saying crazy things about how she was so sorry and that if I wanted to I could go fuck someone to make it even.

Twisted, twisted shit.

Anyways, it took a week of fighting and I finally forgave her, but like I said I never really trusted her again. She wound up going up north to work for a season and cheated on me with an Eskimo. I am leaving the joke available for whoever wants to grab it.

After that we were done, and I was broken for a bit. Silver lining is I eventually met my wife and I learned what a good relationship actually looks like.

As an aside, I once left my wife at a bar because I had to go home to get my id. She was pretty drunk. When I got back to the bar, I saw a guy wrapping his arm around her. She removed it with the disgust and gentility that one would dispose of a dead mouse. It was a glorious moment.

2. Simple, Love

Because I loved her, because I always imagined that I’d spend the rest of my life with her. But she ended up leaving me down the road and her unfaithfulness was a contributor to her decision. I’m glad she did, because I would’ve stayed with her but it was never the same, to this day the person I miss is not the woman who left me at the end of it.

Poetry Lovers! 💖

Love a soft person. The ones who are positive, even in the worst of circumstances. Someone whose strength is not in bravado, but in their quiet. Someone who is strong for others because that is what is needed in that moment. Someone who is the moon that soothes instead of the sun that burns. Someone who sees the very best in people even when you think they aren’t worth it. The kind of person who always wants to do the best for those they love.”

“I bought this on a whim to read as I was resting for the night, and I do not regret it one bit! Everything about the poetry in this book is amazing, heart breaking, and soul searching. It will lift your spirits on your darkest days. I want to thank the author so much for writing this, as it’s something I will be rereading a lot! Always remember, everything about you is important. You matter.” —McKayla

    I know there are reasons to keep trying and I respect people who take that path, because it HAS to be difficult. For myself, though, fidelity in a marriage is not something to mess around with. When one partner strays, there are deep, abiding issues, and that is reason enough to move on.

    Staying a relationship after it has been broken is something that the people in the relationship need to decide. It is not something that someone outside the relationship can judge. Every relationship is different.
