Not Your ‘One’, Just Another Name: Story Extract

“One by one, everyone who I ever loved or cared for is removed from my life. I feel like someone is out to destroy me. Sometimes it feels like things are finally looking up, then it happens, just ripped from my life and there’s nothing I can do to make things right again.

I guess I should have known better. I don’t know exactly when I started falling for you but it sure happened. I’m smarter than that but apparently love has no conscience for what’s right or wrong, what’s good or bad.

I just know it hurts each and every time you walk from me because I know you are landing in another woman’s bed and I never know what I did wrong to deserve it.

I wait patiently for you to come home so I can pretend nothing has happened and just get on with life. This is how I cope, this is how I survive. I always knew this is who you are but I thought you had changed. I really thought I was important enough to keep you in my bed. I actually thought I was your one.

Now it doesn’t matter because I’ve just become another name on your endless list of people you walked over. The sad thing is I forgive you. I still love you because you are my one even if I’m not yours…”

Inspired by someone who keeps drifting in and out of my life. Although the circumstance and situation is nothing like this piece. I hope this has been an interesting read. I hope the people in my life will continue to fuel me with passion and emotion so I can endure the hard times and make my dream come true. Thank you for reading x
