Letter to ‘The One That Got Away’

image

I definitely didn’t have the power to decide who my first love would be.
God gave me you and you me.
Our lives together we made memories, memories I hold dear to my heart and would never forget.

My love for you was so deep at some point in time I actually believed you were my Kryptonite and my Achilles heel. I began to fear losing you and the fear of losing you kept me in check I must say.
I wanted to please you always, I wanted to be perfect for you. Continue reading

Letter to my Ex

Hey you,

It’s been a while, a very long while.
I remember like yesterday that fateful day, the day came like all other days.

Rejoinder to Letter To My Ex

I’m not one to step into the fray but I’ll do this at least for my own sanity and for my fiancé – You remember Oseme, yes, that Oseme – over the weekend, she the one word I’ve always wanted to hear – Yes!

Letter To My Ex

Dear Ex,

As I write to you, I can’t help but feel nostalgic. A sinking pain of what could have been comes to mind. I guess I should be grateful. They call it dodging a bullet but why does it feel like I get shot every single time. Why do you still feel like home.

It’s been years now but you see, the heart is a funny thing. It has its reason of which reason knows nothing, didn’t Leigh Bardugo say ‘the heart is like an arrow, which demands aim to land true’. Well, you found me and sharp were those edges. Continue reading
