Our secret exposed
Romance reduced to ashes
I still burn for you
And will love you like a wolf
Secretly adores the moon
A woman, against her better judgement, entered into a relationship with a married man. She’s smart and knows relationships of this type rarely workout, if ever, but there was something about this man. She hoped things would end differently for her although, every fiber of her being warned her that it wouldn’t.
Now, the secret of their affair has been exposed and the man she had fallen in love with is begging his wife to forgive him. His words, ‘It was a mistake. She means nothing to me! You’re all that matters in my life. I love you. You are my wife.’ burned a hole in her chest that may never be healed.
Despite everything she saw and heard, regardless of the fact that he had abandoned and forgotten her and lives happily with his wife, in spite of the humiliation she endured, she still loved him and she missed their time together.
This is the lesson, while she continues to be secretly in love with this man, like the wolf’s love for the moon, her love will be unrequited. It’s best to respect another’s marriage/relationship even if they don’t, because it never ends well.
