An Open Letter To The Girl He Cheated On Me With
I hope you’re doing well. D’you know yet that he takes his coffee black with two sugars? Or that he prefers Batman to Superman? Or have you been too busy trying to unearth the secrets he hides between the sheets?
You texted me the other day, saying you’re sorry, and that you were too in love with him to see that what you did was wrong. Well here’s what I have to say to you.
I’m sure he hid the intensity of his feelings for me, maybe even made it sound like it was something very casual. But you lacked the empathy to realise that it could happen to you one day, too. And if it happened to you, you’d have called yourself a lot of names too. He let you in, but you went in all knowingly too. Yes you were in love, and love makes you do irrational things, but that doesn’t mean you forget the fact that you know he had a very sacrosanct bond with another girl. A girl who is on another continent. A girl who gave him her all. Who had blind faith in him. Yes, he’s an asshole, but you’re an equal accomplice in his assholery. He said I’m after him and he didn’t want anything to do with me. And you believed him, till you saw pictures of me in his phone, messages from me starred. You realised all too late that you’d made a blunder.
You may not have been broken by the truth, because you only broke further something that was cracked, but just remember, that when he tears you down, you’re most welcome to come to me, and I’ll help you get back up.
So I wish you all the luck in the world with him, but just know, that if he could leave me for you, he’d do it again in a heartbeat.
