    Keeping Your Enemies Close

    For 7 years she led me to believe she was in love with me.  The last 3 years have been perfect between us.  I learnt how to truly love someone with her.. instead of getting irritated at her faults, I accepted them as part of her and respected her for who she was 100...

    After 6 years of marriage it has come to this.

    I packed my stuff and moved out. My husband is from Nigeria and I am from the USA. Apparently in his culture it is perfectly acceptable for your husband to cheat on you. Where to start... Our marriage has always been rocky. With the cultural differences it was never easy. There...

    A Belated Letter To My Ex-boyfriend

    Dear Mr ex-boyfriend, I meant to write to you sooner but the letter was eventually thrown away. When I was on my way to the post office to send the letter to you, I suddenly realised that whatever I had written was crap and you were not going to read it anyway. Thus, I dropped...

    I'm Not Going Back To The Time For A Heartless Man Like You

    Is it possible to love someone but not want to be with them?

    Aye aye aye, so its been 3 months since Jimmy broke up with me, and yet I'm still not over it yet. You would think a 19 year old would be playing the field and dating numerous amounts of boys. Nope, I fooled you. I'm in the opposite position; I have a picture of him in my room...
