  • My problems are minimal compared to some others around the world who go threw so much more. I spend 8 years having the mother of my child hold my daughter away from me. I knew not where they were. I spend the same 8 years with a woman who abused me in many ways. it was to the point that my manliness was reduced to nothing. as common as it may sound, I stayed because I love her. As dumb as it might sound, I would go back to her. a week before we were suppose to get married she manufactured an argument and as a result were not together anymore. I moved to virginia from new york just so I can be with her. I left everything I knew only to lose everything I wanted. damn! I feel like im dreaming and im due to wake up any second. Im told to keep good faith, but I find myself asking where is God threw out all of this. How can someone love you one day then throw it all away as if you did not exist. I saw her the other day and after 8 years of having a relationship with her, I felt like I was looking at a stranger. I use to look at her and take "snap shots" so to speak, I guess because I knew I would not always have her. all i have now are memories. guilt. feeling like I wasted my time.
    after 8 years now im dating again. I see why good men become dogs. why should I wear my heart on my sleeve ? why should I be honest when theres no reward for it ? i feel like im drifting barely drowning in my emotions. I smile even though im screaming inside. trust another female ? ill trust the devil before i do that again.
    Ive prepared myself to be someones husband only to be trusted into the single life. in essence im a single husband.
    why do people do each other so wrongly? questions I will never gain a true answer for. everyday im drinking. I never drank. this is the only way i can even sleep. and even then im tormented via dreams of the memories of her.
    the day I get my daughter back into my life, the next day I loose a fiance.
