To All Of The Broken Hearted Significant Others, This One Is For You

A poem that speaks volumes of what infidelity does to a relationship and the mental battles we all face during that trying time

To All Of The Broken Hearted Significant Others, This One Is For You

I remember thinking how lucky I was

How lucky I was to know you

To have you by my side

To say that you are and will always be mine

I treasured that

There was a pride deep down inside

Because I knew

I believed

Nothing in this world could ever tear you and I apart

With all of my heart

I felt you would be there

Never stray

Never go away

I remember thinking how envious others were

Because I had such a good guy to call mine

Not theirs


And I can smile recollecting these memories

Or should I laugh

At the naivety instead?

In those false beliefs

Of a happily ever after with my "one true love"

At believing you would never

In your wildest dreams

Crush me to the core

Stomp on my heart so hard

Leaving it barely recognizable as a beating heart

Leave it as mush

Like roadkill

After a speeding car collides and runs it over

Slowly losing its strength and will to continue beating

As the blood slowly stops circulating

To the point of


Yes, maybe that is it

How you pulled a wool over my eyes

At the sinful deeds you committed

The numerous women

You took to bed

While telling me

Your "one true love"

How much you truly loved

Loved me

I bark out a harsh laugh and shake my head

Wow, girl, wow

How stupid could you be

To not see the truth for what it was

For feeling his friends were yours

But they NEVER had your back

Those rose colored glasses were lifted from my eyes

Letting me see their true colors

Every one of them

Letting me know who I could truly trust

Which, to me, seems like none

Speed bump

Oh, wait, no

Another speeding car runs over my slowly giving up the will to live heart

As onlookers start to crowd around

Point and murmur

Is that how it was when I was unaware of what really was going on?

Here she comes, shhh don't say anything

Don't worry man, we got your back

They point and they whisper

They ponder

They begin to speculate

And I am just lying there

Continuously run over

The breath comes forced

The blood stops to flow

And there I am



Never to be the same

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
