Bearing the brunt of betrayal, his long-time lady lover leaves him for another flame. Surprisingly saying "I'm so sorry, Sam, we should start seeing other people" Broken by a brutal blindside out of nowhere. He couldn't comprehend the reason; the shock shook him like a loud trembling thunder shakes someone out in the rain Suddenly lovelorn, he's left wondering why. "What did I do to deserve this?" To add insult to injury, he learns she left him for his best friend, Bruce.

Hi Edward, this is such a strong piece. How sad it is when hearts are broken, especially when there is no warning. Your lines speak well of this situation, painting such strong images on the canvas of the mind. I love the content of this write. It's a fav from me. Have a wonderful Friday. Your friend....Mike.

Edward, Stopped in my tracks by the title of your poem. If misery loves company than this poem should be well received. 'You've got to give a little, take a little, and let your poor heart break a little. That's the story of, that's the glory of love.' -Billy Hill
