From Our Readers: To the Guy Who Left Me Broken
They said three months is enough for a person to move on but its been five months, and here I am, still as broken as before.
You came into my life when I was so down and was needing someone to lean on. We talked and talked until one of us fell in love with the other, you did. I didn't take you seriously that time but as the days went by, I felt your sincerity and ended up falling for you, too. You taught me how to love and made me feel how to be loved. And you made me feel how great it is to love someone and be loved back. You made me believe in the impossible, you made me believe in forever!
Our relationship wasn't perfect, being in a long distance one to start with, but we both held on. You tried your best to understand me and I tried my best to trust you. You eased my trust issues away and told me it was okay to trust you, and trusting you I did. I trusted you when you said you love me. I trusted you when you said you'll spend the rest of your life with me. And I trusted you despite all your broken promises of coming to see me.
I trusted you when you said you'll spend the rest of your life with me.
Our relationship wasn't perfect but we lasted a year and a week before the 4th month. We lasted long, before you decided to let go. You let go despite me holding on. You let go and left me without any consideration. You left me without any choice to move on. But moving on I cannot do. Because how can I move on when the one who made me feel alive again, left me broken?
