He Loves Me Not


I remember the day I saw him. Perfect blue eyes, beautiful brown hair, perfection. I couldn't help but stare at him. When you met my gaze I tried to hide my awe but he caught my gaze. I pretended as though I had not seen him. He came to my table and smiled so perfectly.

“Is this seat taken?” he asked softly

“No, um...  would you like to sit?” i sheepishly asked him

I am such an idiot. I just blew my chance with him by being so awkward. I was surprised when he sat down and complimented me.

“You are beautiful, if I’m not being to forward”

Did this gorgeous stranger just call me beautiful? He wrote his phone number on a napkin and left the little coffee shop, leaving me positively giddy. The rest of my day could not be dulled, I was ecstatic.

Later that night I finally gathered up the courage to call him. We spoke for 2 hours, getting to know each other. He was so perfect, we started meeting up for coffee every week, learning so many things along the way. No one could ruin my happiness. We talked every night for months. Then, he finally told me the words every girl wants to hear.

“I love you.”

And I loved him, so much. He made me the happiest I had ever been. Our relationship was filled with passionate kisses and happiness. After a year of being together he asked me the hardest question to answer.

 “Will you marry me?”

 This is the man I love so I could not contain myself. I was crying with tears of joy, visualising our future together.

“Yes!” I couldn't say it loud enough

 We planned our wedding and exchanged our vows. I was in the happiest state possible. I was married to my soulmate. The man I could never imagine with myself a year and a half ago. God, just being with him made me happy.

Until I wasn’t. After a year of marriage we grew apart. He started defying all the things he promised in his vows. He told me he wished we never met. I never felt so hurt, he just threw away 2 years of our lives. I gave him way too many chances to fix his mistakes when I came to the realization that I could never change him. He manipulated me and broke my heart. One saying kept playing through my head.

He loves me, he loves me not.

Instead of our marriage being filled with kisses and love, it was filled with insults and hate. How did this happen? We were so happy. I can’t even think about our past without wanting to cry. I hoped God can hear my prayers for things to work out. Things never got better they got worse. The day I left was the day I broke inside.

Shortly after he called me asking him to take hm back and that he could change, I told him he hurt me too much and I was not going back. He then insulted me beyond belief. I was hurt. But that old saying didn’t lie.

He loves me, he loves me not.
