My Fair-weather Love

My Fair-weather Love

For three years you stringed me along,
You made me believe that with you I could be strong
I brought to you my deepest of secrets,
But there was something I couldn't yet say.
The day before we talked of weddings
Not just one, but two!
So that both of our families could see the view
Of two lovers uniting from worlds apart
You said our love was so strong
surely nothing could tear us apart.
It was then that I knew or so I believed,
That telling you my pain would help put me at ease
I mustered the courage and wrote out the words
Of what happens when a girl drinks too much.
In a moment after, everything changed
I guess you couldn't bear the news
That your princess, your lover
She was just another broken soul,
And now I wake up every day alone
Wishing that I hadn't had so much faith in you.

This is a heartbreaking piece of prose
Although there are too many of those
Yours stands out, as your writing shows
You did your feeling so well expose

Thank you for the sorrowful write

The imagery chosen for this heart wrenching piece is perfectly blended into the sad emotions coming from your words..

It's to often a bitter pill to swallow, truth can test the strength of love, or should I say what we assumed was love...

For my own understanding on things, I've often discovered truth, in two ways from others , either drunk or extremely angry ...

Remarkable ink 👏👏👏👏👏👏
