You blamed me
For how things ended
Never taking responsibility
for your part
After we parted
your behavior turned rancid
sex with strangers, drugs and anger
Now you are getting married
to someone you have dated for 2 months
Even though we were together for 5 years
You got angry with me, when I asked you to marry me
Even if I wanted to be with you again
After the things you did
It justified the end
Never again will I hold you close
Always a spot in my heart
I will hold for you
But you will never have the whole
It was the hardest thing I've ever had to do
To say good-bye to the one that i still loved
I was more lonely being with you
Then I ever was without you
Im better without your poison within me
It hurt, but I will heal
For you are the one who lost,
and you can never have it again

I feel sorry for his current wife. He'll pollute her eventually too. Thankfully, you're out of it!

lovely piece! if this is not fiction, i'm sorry to hear of your misfortune & wasted years. finding the right person for you to marry for you is dealt in increments; at least that is what i believe. glad you never married this person.
