Things I Learned While Being In Love

1. Never settle… As much as I hate to admit it, this is not my first engagement. I was once engaged for a little over seven months, but it just didn’t feel right, mostly because it wasn’t. He didn’t ask my father for my hand (which I actually wanted), I couldn’t tell friends or family about the engagement because we decided to keep it a secret and reveal it “when the time is right,” and worst of all, I was embarrassed to tell anyone anyway… because Continue reading


The Reason

A memo to him:

I thought I had you.

I guess you ran out of patience,

 or maybe you thought I was too high maintenance.

No, that can’t be it. You just wanted to quit…

I guess I wasn’t enough for you.

It’s true, I feel let down because I waited around.

Hoping and praying that you would too.

So far removed, you forgot about me.

You must’ve thought I forgot about you.

A memo to you:

Higher and higher we go.

I don’t want to come back down.

Your love got me high.

Indeed, it’s true. Everything does happen for a reason. Case in point… the reason I didn’t end up with him is because he wasn’t the right one for me. We’re on two different pages. Always have been, always will be. Though I desperately wanted us to be, it wasn’t our fate. Now I realize he could never be as perfect for me as you are. The man I’m with now is the right one. The only one. My best friend and lover.

I remember the first day I saw him. He had hazel eyes and cocoa colored skin. He was a grade above me and seemed to be so cool. After a few weeks of staring at him between classes, I finally went up to him and said Continue reading
