I went against all I believed in and fell in love with what should have been a one-night
stand! I fought it, tried to make up rules to prevent the inevitable, but somehow, he knew all along. He understood what I wanted and was willing to comply. I was the one who took him for granted. I was the one who made him walk away. And now, he’s gone and I’m left with nothing but my thoughts and regrets. He was never supposed to be my happily ever after. But my favorite love story ends in tragedy, so why wouldn’t mine?
I played the white knight, doing what every woman dreams of to win her over, yet it still got me nowhere! But what did I expect? I wasn’t the man she wanted! Nothing I
could have done would have landed me the girl. I guess love is funny that way.
One minute, you think you have the girl, and the next, you realize you were
blinded. Walking away was hard, but watching her with another man was harder.
Sometimes you have to pick your battles, and I know when I’ve lost. Love
shouldn’t be a game, but I learned someone always loses. For once, I wasn’t the
one being selfish, but I was the one who paid the price.
