I'm not sure if this is a poem I'm not a poet this is what I wrote when I was hurt and angry

Or so I thought...


I had a friend or so I thought both as silly as the other, we would be there for each other and of course you were 


I was there for him when his fiancee left him he was there when my eldest daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes although not in the same town we’d ring or text each other are true friend I would say or so I thought


The day came after many years of being friends he suggested we try being more I thought to give it a try although I wasn’t sure we would fly he was a dear friend or so I thought could I change my feelings to more


He told me one time when I was unsure that he would tell me if it wasn’t working for him I trusted him at his word I could you know or so I thought


Two years later or was it more I couldn’t tell you for sure one night out with my brother he showed me a post that my boyfriend or so I thought I was shocked I was in a daze 


couldn’t believe what I was seeing he happy to announce he was to be in relationship with another


all that night and the next day too I was in a daze it must be some mistake or so I thought he wouldn’t do this to 

me or so I thought he’d promised he’d tell me.

You did a good job of capturing the emotions of this experience.

Thank you Serge I guess it helped that I was feeling the emotions while writing.

Full of the ups and downs of a relationship. There was a time when people would talk to each other rather than spring it on someone through social media.

True relationships are full of ups and down. That time seems to be long past, thank you for your comment.

I guess he did tell you after all. You just weren't expecting him to use the language of cowards. Your own honesty and integrity remain untainted, and you are still the beautiful you. Keep writing!

When you put it that way he did tell me you are correct I expected him to be more a man thank you so much for your lovely comment.

Wow this is a heartbreaking story. It must have really hurt having something happen like that. Its really hard, when you put your heart and everything into a relationship and they do something like that. Makes you afraid to ever get close to someone again.

It did really hurt when you trust someone and they turn around and do something like that, I just don't understand how someone who is meant to care about a person can do such a thing in such a cowardly way.

That guy was a jerk. Hope she finds another.

Yeah, he was. The sad part was I wouldn't have thought he would have been, and It just goes to show with some people you don't know them as well as you think no matter how long you've known them.
