Poem: Sucker Punched!

But since life is no fairy tale
The forever love promise soon become stale
My name day came and went
Suddenly there was no time to spend

1,000 days of relationship bliss
respect, love, fidelity, plenty fights and many a passionate kiss
Through thick and thin, you promised to hold my hand
I was living foolishly in La La Land

But since life is no fairy tale
The forever love promise soon become stale
My name day came and went
Suddenly there was no time to spend

Soon enough I got a brutal call
Half a minute precisely, to wrap it all
“I have moved on”, said the voice on the other end
“With someone new” – no longer needed to pretend
“It was unexpected, we were sucker punched out of the blue -so true”

“Be Strong, Move On”
Cause we were completely wrong”
1,000 memories for 1,000 days surely meant nothing at all
One new person was all it took to break us apart
And you sucker punched my heart!
