Do you remember the way she looked at you? Her eyes were glowing with admiration and respect. Do you remember her smile when she told you that you are the man of her dreams?
You found the needle in the haystack. You found a strong, good-hearted woman with a pure angelic soul. She was a warrior fighting to keep your love alive.
No, she wasn’t perfect, but she loved you in a thousand perfect ways. You had her precious love on the palm of your hands. What else mattered?
You swore on eternal love but knew very little about it. You didn’t love her.
She was nothing more than a game to you. You played with her heart until you broke it. You left her crying on the floor, trying to put all the broken pieces of her soul together. You let her slip away.
You didn’t know how to love a real woman.
You didn’t give a damn about her feelings.
You never accepted her the way she was. You didn’t care about her opinions, needs, feelings. Your poisonous words were tearing her soul apart. You blamed her for your poor actions. You were fighting with her, not for her. Never.
You lied to her.
With you, she felt stuck in a huge labyrinth of manipulations and lies. With you, she felt unable to get out of it. You made her lose all the trust in you, in love. You took her for granted. And she got sick and tired because of that.
You were never there when she needed you.
You didn’t lend her a helping hand. You let her walk alone through storms. You made her feel uncared, unloved, scared, lonely…
You took all the lightness from her eyes. You made her lose hope. And when she felt helpless, losing the last bit of hope, she found love in someone else. She felt alive again.
You made her fall in love with someone else.
You made her fall in love with someone else because you didn’t appreciate her efforts. You made her fall in love with someone else because a woman like her felt worthless in your eyes.
You made her fall in love with someone else because you were a taker not willing to compromise. You didn’t lift a finger to make her happy, to keep the relationship stable and healthy.
You made her fall in love with someone else because you were too self-absorbed to admit that you need to change for the sake of love. You thought she will always be your pawn.
You thought she was naive. You thought she was weak.
What were you thinking about? You expected her to come back to you like a sad, lost puppy with wet eyes? You believed, she would forgive you again?
You had so many chances, but you gambled with them. A woman like her was strong enough to close the door and move on with her life. A woman like her knew she deserved better. That’s why she didn’t settle for less.
That’s why she erased you from her life and fell in love with someone else.
