    Forgiveness Hurts

    I wish I could forget about him for cheating before and during my pregnancy... Hurting us as if we are nothing. Ignoring us. I learned to forgive. I feel as if the other women were worth more than my name tatted on his chest and his first born son to carry his name. I feel like...

    My Scars

    I love you. And it hurts that you don't see me the same way I see you. But why should you? I have a scar on my heart. But I love you, and it's most important that you are good. Please love God.

    In The Literal Sense!

    When I was younger, I had a bit of an accident. It involved a wall, Jack Daniels and an ex that left quite a sizeable impression on me.  Short version of the story (I don't want to bore people) I fell off a wall and ended up with a 2 inch scar on my chest.  My heart is...

    He Left A Scar On My Life
