She was unaware of what she was dealing with when he unceremoniously dumped her. They had fought the night before but she thought he would get over it.
He ignored her calls. Instead sending vile texts of hate and implying she needed psychiatric help. She didn’t understand him. It was hurtful and cruel.
She moved on without him but would occasionally receive message with random, rude comments aimed to wound her heart.
One day he reached out and all the hurt was forgotten and they reunited. Happier and in a better place, they eventually married.
Yet four years to that day, he demanded a divorce and again kicked her to the curb.
Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.
Looking in the mirror she said to herself, ‘One day you will love again the stranger who was your self’
