I once fell in love with someone, who woke up a torrent of love and emotions in me without the intention of truly loving me.
I wasn’t really into him at the beginning. I only saw him as someone I could relate with intellectually.
Getting close to him, I found out he was funny, neat, polished and intelligent, absolutely my kind of man. That excited me, especially with him keeping up with my playful side.
When the window of opportunity came, he pursued me relentlessly and I gave in. Falling hopelessly in love with him.
In my mind, l thought it was a match made in heaven.
He did set my soul on fire and my love for him burnt wild.
Suddenly and without any warning, he began to drift away. He didn’t share any intimacy with me, except a few stolen kisses and he became too busy to see me. Cranky and impatient with me.
After a while, I figured it was a game to him because he had no excuse for his actions and his disappearing act.
I truly felt like a lab experiment with the way he treated me. It was as if he was testing me, to know my reactions to his overtures and when he got his answers he started misbehaving.
Instinctively, I knew he had a sinister motive. So I broke it off, instead of accomodating his endless excuses and lies.
How cruel of him, I thought. Why would anyone relentlessly chase a man or a woman, you don’t want.
Why would you tease someone for no reason and awaken their love, when you have no intention of loving them.
How do they look at themselves in the mirror? I wondered.
Well, it is history now. Though I came out of it hurt, I also learnt a lesson.
I just hope, people who awaken others love with evil intentions, will quit doing this.
It is cruel to make someone love you and you neglect them.
What you don’t want to eat, don’t taste it. Don’t even smell it.
