What is true love?
Are soul mates real?
Are they sent from above?
Do they cause you to feel
That special knowing
That gets your blood flowing?
Is it supposedly magic?
Do soul mates exist?
Or is love supposed to be tragic?
Maybe it’s just something I missed
Never has he been a best friend
Each time I thought he was the one
It always came to an unhealthy end
Should I give up hope and be done?
Perhaps we don’t all get our twin flame
For some, maybe love is meant to be
And others, it’s meant to be pain
Is there really someone for me?
And our paths have just not crossed yet?
How long am I supposed to wait?
Is staying single my best bet?
Feeling a bit melancholy today. Christmas brings it out, I guess. I’ll never forget one Christmas, this guy I’d been dating had been acting distant. Then on Dec 23, he presented me with a beautiful custom-made ring. I was completely confused, because of how he’d been acting and then not knowing what this ring meant.
On Christmas Eve, he broke up with me. Yup. Best Christmas ever. I asked him, “Why did you have this ring made for me?! Why on earth would you give me a ring, knowing you’re going to break up?!”
Wanna know what his response was?! What a lame ass…
“It’s a special ring for a special person.”
Basically, yes, he knew he was going to break up with me when he had it made. It was meant to be a parting gift. I found out that he’d given another girl he’d dated before me the same parting gift – a different ring that he custom made. As if a ring is going to be this wonderful consolation prize. Yeah, he was a real genius.
I ran into him a couple of years later and he was with the girl he left me for. They were married. She looked exactly like him. Weirdest thing ever! Seriously, she had his face but with longer hair and a bit more junk in her trunk.
No, I’m not bitter. It would just be nice if some of these guys would have a brain. Don’t give a ring as a parting gift, okay, guys? Because that’s really stupid. And if you know you want to break up with a girl, please do it sooner than Christmas Eve. Don’t prolong things. Don’t linger. Just get it done as quickly as you can. You’ll be free and you will maybe not ruin her Christmas.
I’m glad he broke up with me. Because I love where I am in my life. I love that I married someone else and had the daughter of my dreams (better than a dream because it’s real), and I’m glad I divorced him and found happiness again in my freedom from that miserable prison. And I’d do it all again to get that wonderful little (not so little anymore as she’s an adult) person!!!!
Still, I wonder if the one is out there or even if there’s such a thing. I did get the daughter I always prayed for with all the qualities I prayed for. Maybe I’ve had my happiness. Maybe that’s all I need. I have my mom and my daughter – 2 best friends. 2 true loves. I guess not many can say they have two.
