Lover number 1


It hurt

It hurt like crazy

There were no more letters

He sent none anymore

She kept sending them

She did

Until he sent his last

She did not reply it

She loved him but her love was not enough for both of them

She knew that now

As soon as she stopped looking at his shadow,

She found another

One who loved her the way she did him

Lover number 1 saw her almost a decade later

With a ring on her finger and a bump in front of her

Then he realized,

It hurt

It hurt like crazy
