Stories

We were together for 4 years total, us against the world. I loved him more than words will ever describe – I had countless poems, letters, photos, memories the remind me of my life with him. After we lived together for a few months he asked me to marry him. I was over the moon, all I wanted was to be with him. We talked about spending our lives together for years and now finally my dream was coming true, not to mention I was already basically his wife. Took care of home, took care of him, made sure our ducks in a row. I gave up friends and loved ones because I wanted to be with him forever and thought we would be. Fairly quickly after we got engaged things started to change – he was more insecure than ever, didn’t want me to go out, didn’t want me to even go to work; he only wanted me at home or with him wherever he was (unless he was wth friends then I was at home) I worked so hard to be his everything and everything he wanted. It was when he started staying out for days at a time that I knew something was wrong. He was partying at his cousins and hanging out with his ex and one night he had been gone for 4 nights and I showed up at his cousins where he would party and begged him to pick me and come home – I told him if he just picked me this one night and came home with me I would forgive him for everything. He didn’t pick me and I was done. I packed my things and left a few days later and of course we tried to work on it but I finally realized it was over when the cycle kept repeating. I spent the final year of our relationship more alone than I had ever felt.
I went to pawn my engagement ring because I needed money for car payments for a car we bought together and the store owner told me everything was fake that it was worth virtually nothing and my heart had broken again. I have spent all year putting myself together, I finally feel good again and found myself in such a happy place in my life. PS I threw the fake ring out of the window of my car as I drove down the freeway leaving the pawn shop.

We were both dying and now that I look back there’s nothing we could have done differently. Cancer had taken over you & I was suffering from severe heart disease. You had a healthy heart & mine was black. Unfortunately the cancer had spread throughout your brain and there was nothing they could do. You gave me your heart & for that I can never repay you. I hope that Heaven is treating you well and I know that we will be brought back together someday. Life is not the same without you, but I know your spirit lives with me everyday. Only 18 years on earth and in those years you changed my life, you were an angel sent to me from heaven. Not only because of your heart but because of the love you showed me. I will never find true love like that again. Rest in the sweetest peace Nathan.

Coming Home
I came home for the first time in a while and it reminded me why I can’t come home anymore.
I went to the kitchen and remembered all the snacks we made when we got high
The basement the millions of movies we watched down there
My bedroom where we slept a hundred nights and broke up a hundred more
There’s still pictures of you around and clothes in old drawers and I can’t seem to figure out why you seem like more of a death in the family then a breakup
I need to get away from home because of you. you whisper me to me through the walls of my own home.

He was beautiful. Like my own personal sunshine. I ran away with him to Brazil. We got married on a Thursday. We were 19. We were divorced on the 10/01/16. I wish it could have been different. I miss him so much.
