I never thought of life like the petals of a rose before.
But they’re so alike.
Delicate and easily crushed.
Broken… just like he made me.
He could pluck away and there was nothing I could do except be destroyed and accept my fate.
That’s what he does, he ruins what he touches. Ruthless and cold hearted.
They gave me to him.
To do as he’d like.
All because I was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
He grew addicted to the feel of plucking away at me. At leaving me bare and taking control over every piece of me.
And if I’m honest with myself… I grew to love it too.

It’s been a long time since I’ve looked at a man and wanted something more.
Even longer since one has looked at me with a gaze that I couldn’t tear my eyes from.
One look and I was tempted; one taste and I was addicted.
No one is perfect, but that’s how it felt to be in his arms.
I started to think everything was going to be alright. That life had finally put the pieces of my broken heart back together.
Fate may have brought us together, it’s a pretty little thought my poetic mind had.
But there’s no doubt that the sins of his past would tear us apart.
“Reading this book leaves you with raw feelings and can break your heart. A very intense love story packed in one single book.” Andrea, early review
All I can remember are our wedding vows.
Through all the lies and secrets that have damaged our marriage, I keep coming back to the words we spoke on that day, when we loved each other so deeply.
The memory only makes the pain in my heart more agonizing. That day I loved him, but I swear I love him more today, even as I shut the door and walk away from him. I can’t live with the lies and only he can make this right.
Even though I know our marriage is scarred forever, it doesn’t change the vows we shared.
I promise to love you forever. And that’s the easy part.
To honor and cherish you.
To keep your wishes and dreams my own.
To comfort you and keep you safe, always.
Till death do us part.
