I say I can’t let you go but I do everytime we go back to our lives.
Why is the world so unfair?
Why can’t they just let us be?
I want to be happy and settle down with you but I can’t.
I see you with the other woman but who am I deceiving, in the eyes of the world, I am the other woman.
The woman who can’t be seen in your arms in public.
Living a lie hurts.
Watching you two hurts.
I am the other woman, the woman who knows your needs and all your secrets.
I am the other woman who can’t be happy she’s in love. Whose love is almost a sin, whose love cannot be heard nor acted upon.
I’m in pain and everyday I keep hoping that we’ll be together, that our ‘I love yous’ won’t be whispered in secret, that you’ll leave her and come to me.
That day never comes and I’m becoming resentful. Our sweet love has turned bitter. It has become a thorn in my flesh…..and the highlight of my life.
So now I wait.
Though I continue to live my life, my heart belongs to you.
Since I can’t seem to do without you, I’ve accepted my role in your life.
Until fate presents us to the world, my arms will be open to receive you whenever you come to me.
Writer’s note: To every ‘Other Women’ out there- Including the men, the game you play is very addictive and the only thing I can say is that you need to try and recover. Find yourself.
Life is like a stage and every individual is the main character of the play that is their lives. You are the main actor/actress in your life and you deserve to be the main person, the only person in your partner’s life. So help yourself, get your acts together and fulfillment will find you.
Remember, happiness is a mood not a destination.
Best of luck!
