A one-sided romance full of hurt and pain.

I’ll be your fool, if that’s what you want from me - if that’s what makes you happy. I don’t know what I did to deserve this or why you feel the need to treat me this way, but it’s okay. Do what you have to do, to make yourself feel the way you want to feel. I won’t stop you. I won’t even cry. I’ll hold it all in just like I’ve been doing all these years, wishing that it would soon come to an end – that it would all soon be over.

Maybe I’m a little to blame as well. Maybe if I wanted more in life – if my dreams were bigger, things would be different. But they’re not and neither am I, so I’ll let you laugh at me and belittle me and I won’t fight back, nor deter you, hoping that one day my ridicule will be enough for you to understand how I don’t want this anymore - hoping that this will be enough to persuade you to let me go, dissuading you from finding someone new – someone weak like me.

So go ahead and laugh. Go ahead be whoever it is you want to be at my expense. I won’t discourage you. I won’t alter your disposition by showing you just how wrong this is and how much it hurts. Don’t you worry, I won’t make you aware that I no longer smile, or haven’t for awhile now. You’re in your own world, and you’re making sure I understand how little I belong…

Oh, sorry, I promised not to cry… There, it’s gone I wiped it away. Besides it was only a single tear, and you’ve ignored more than that in the past.

Go on continue… laugh.

I’ll behave…

I’ll be your fool.

In any ongoing relationship someone has to be the "fool".It to me is just a sad but necessary fact of life,

Yes, it is sad, and really not necessary, but it does happen, and when it does, the one being mistreated also has their heart crushed. It's the disappointment - the let down - the disbelief that they were so blinded by love that they didn't see this coming.

Wow....this is dismal
I'm so tired, I forgot that I got thrown off the site since you last posted. None of you pieces tell me that I've commented but I've commented on all the ones from last year (I think) as my former self.

"True Confessions"...OMG, Darian. The first sentence says it all. Is this supposed to give her a guilt trip? Don't count on it. I don't agree with Vanilla. You can own your destiny. It's painful to make that break, but not as enduring as the misery you describe

I could never really understand what makes a person endure such, pain and ridicule, but it happens. I understand that some people just don't want to be alone and they fear that they will never find someone else, but the mistreatment...

Yes you have commented on my other pieces. Should I ask why you got kicked off, lol?

Thanks for reading.
