Fighting Dirty

I promised to never
hold your past against you.
You asked me for a chance
to prove yourself
so I wiped the slate clean —
I gave you a fresh start
and you promised
to do the same for me.

To this day,  I never used your past
in any of our arguments.
I never threw your mistakes
back in your face.
I always held my tongue
and kept my promise
to respect you as a person.
But you reneged —
your word was not bond.

You disrespected me,
called me names,
became violent,
threatened my life, 
then defiled me
in the worst way possible —
You took from me
what I would have given you freely
had you loved me like you promised.

To love,  honor and cherish,
for better for worse, 
in sickness and in health,
til death do us part —
those were the words we vowed, 
but you didn’t keep your promises.
You fought dirty.
You tried to use my past againt me, 
but now it seems
you get your just reward.
It doesn’t pay to fight dirty does it?

    1. Yes.
      My mind has been traveling down a few lonely, dusty roads lately. I’m anxious to get back home so I can wash all this dust off and get back to the sweet smell of flowers and the sound of laughter.

      Thanks for coming along on the ride, it’s nice to have a bit of company ☺. Hugs🌷


    1. Thanks. ☺
      Hope I’m not being too dark for yah. Just dealing with a few old memories that have a way of surfacing at the most inopportune times. Just getting them out of my system. ☺

  1. Very powerful . All’s fair in war and love is the saddest truth of human existence , even in war some of us can not hit below the belt and some others choose to do that in the name of love ! Yes it should not pay ……Patience is not weakness.
