The vows of heartache
It all started about 20 years ago. I met a friend of my boyfriends. He was the sweetest man I had ever met. Or so I thought. My boyfriend and I were not getting along. I was still faithful but I couldn't get his friend off my mind.
So as months went by. My boyfriend and I split up. And I started dating his friend. We ended up getting married. I had thought I found my soul mate. But I was wrong.
I took and raised his three kids from a previous marriage. I loved them like my own. I knew I could never have kids of my own. That is when the trouble started. He kept talking about his ex and how he wanted her back. But we were married. How could he do that? That was the big question. But I believed in the vows and made a promise to do all I could to make him happy. But as years went by and the kids grew up. It just got worse. There was mental abuse all the time. But I still tried to make it work.
Once the last child reached 18, I thought it would be time to rekindle our love. Or should I have said my love. But that never happen. It got to the point that I was only there when he needed something. But not because he loved me.
So after being married for almost 19 years, I finally had to give up and throw in the towel. My marriage was over. It had been over for years. But I just didn't want to believe that It was. Instead of having the vows of a marriage. I had vows of a heartache.
Sometimes we should listen to our head instead of our heart. Then the heartache wouldn't have lasted that long.
