To Brian Wisowaty,

To Brian Wisowaty,

with Love,

Brian Wisowaty & Ria

Just when you realize-

I will be loving
someone new
Just when you realize
It was me who saved
and held you

I will be with my
New love
Planning a trip
Just when you realize
you are alone again
and losing your grip

I will go to bed with
HIS arms holding me tight
Just when you realize
How lonely you are
Each and every night

I will wake with a smile
Look forward to our day's plan
Just when you realize
You were so lucky
When you were my man

I will not recognize you
When your calling
To casually ask,
How's it going?

You will hear my voice
When you say
What you say

Just then you realize
I am disappointed
Like hearing your voice
ruined my day!

Just then you realize
There is no way
Not again
You won't get me to play
You hang up the phone
and sigh
Knowing down
deep inside

You lost your chance
A long time ago
With the woman
You grew to know
As the one
That was always there
You just didn't care
You threw her away

Then by happenstance one day...

You might catch a glimpse
Of a woman who
looks just like me

She will be walking
Hand and hand with a
Very Good looking man

You hear her giggle
See her smile
See her eyes
That's Ria!
That's the
Woman who loved me
The woman
I despised!

Just then you realize
A feeling
Bubbling up
It's the
Green eye of envy
It will awake
From deep inside

Why are you jealous?
You threw me away

I was crazy, fat and old
Not anyone to be proud of
and to behold
You kept Ria a secret
Hidden and away

Tricking, lying, cheating
Just conning your way...
To groom the next woman
For another place stay

Just then you remember
All the chances you had
To build a life
On the life
That you had

Cared for
Loved, and admired
But Ria didn't have the
Beauty you required

Just then you realize
The life you wanted
Is all that you had
But back then ...
It was too hard
To decide
Which "bitch"
You wanted
To slide into
Night after night

You were high, wild
Lazy, crazy, and
But then again,
You did get an

Just then you realize
How you lost your way
You had what you wanted
Then you threw it away?
Shaking your head
At the mistakes you made
As they continue to flash
In your minds eye
You see
All the women
You hurt and deceived

Just then you realize
Ria's words from before
You must GIVE love
To feel happy
And to receive
People grow tired
Brian, I promise
This will be
your demise
They'll give up on you
They won't all compromise

Just then you realize
Ria's words ring true
She could no longer
Drink, eat, and breath
Live with poison
That poison that is you

You made it so hard
The lying, cheating
The explosive abuse
Turned her back
Closed the door
Gave up on hoping
You could ever
Be more

Just then you realize
As you look
To your right
Beside you sits
The woman you chose
It's good, right?
You think about
How little you fight
Night after night

Just then you realize
Well she is not
All that bright
She is a beauty
Without a doubt
Stand tall beside her
Then again
You shrink
When she opens her mouth
There is
No passion, no giggles, no....
But that's alright,

Just then you realize
The love
You desired
Was offered
By that Ria
She begged to be off
Your list
Up until today
You forgot she exists
She did love you
So long ago
The woman who
Had to let go

But remember?
Just was not enough
Not perfect
Not pretty,
She looked kinda rough

You couldn't settle
Not for someone
Not anyone who
Looked like that!

Just then you realize
That old saying is true!
The grass is always greener
Greener you chased!

Just then you realize
Years have past
Now all you have
Is a tiny
Patch of grass
It isnt
As green
Nor is it lush
It is not what you wanted

You dont have
That thrill
That Rush
You once felt
From love
The love you were given
By the woman
You kept hidden

Just then you realize
Your life was what
You made it
Scattered at best!
No warmth
A home
You have what
You work for
Nothing at all
Just then you realize
What a waste
What a shame
As you look at
The woman
You chose
The one beside you
You did!
You did ,settled after all!

If only you knew
How your ego
Would effect you
Would you go back
Back in time
Would you invest
Your love
Your time
Ria was her name
Should you have
Settled with her instead?

Regrets are avoidable
Do what you must, today! Tomorrow's regret
Is bitter and harsh
Regret keeps you
Self loathing
and hate
It is like poison
You drink
Each and every day!
I no longer drink
The poison you offer
But my advise...

Do what you must
Fix and undo
The pain you inflict on others.
Face your demons
Make them your friend
Use them to grow from
Build your own strength

Time is so limited
You never know
The next moment
Might be your last

As your life flashes
before you I hope
You smile with delight

I dont wish for that
Moment to be full of
I hope you can learn
How to share,
Be fearless...
Try to become a real man.
It will be
Ok in the end
Because you
will have your next
life to begin again!

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get. Through all the break-ups, obstacles, and struggles in our love lives, romantic comedies have always been there to make us laugh and keep us company while we cry.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember. Although rom-coms are far from reality, it is always fun to imagine what our life would be like if a cinematic studio was behind our love life. So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

The NBA is back, and for basketball fans, like myself, it has been the BEST news we have heard since COVID-19 shutdown play indefinitely. I mean, come on, we need to see if James Harden can once again perform so well he has back-to-back 50 point games, Kawhi can lead another team to the championship title, and whether Giannis is going to be back-to-back MVP... among like 500 other things running through our heads!

In the midst of all of the amazing statistics and records that these players are breaking, though, we also just love the NBA because well, there are some pretty good looking guys out there. Here are the 19 hottest NBA players (in no particular order) you would totally let slam dunk on you now that the NBA has returned.

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).

Just Because You're Asked To Be In A Wedding, Doesn't Always Mean You Should Say Yes

If you can't invest time, money, and YOURSELF, maybe say no to the offer for the bride's sake!

Being in a wedding is a really big commitment. I personally think if you've never been in one before, you don't understand the time, money, and energy that goes into being a part of it.

1. They have low self-esteem.
