He cheated

He cheated on you but he wants you back so that makes everything ok.
He cheated on you but he wants you back so that makes the past forgotten.
He cheated on you but he “loves” you and you love him back.
But then you remember he cheated on you, hurt you and smashed your heart.
He left you to go back to her who he also cheated on.
He loves you he keeps repeating over and over.
The thing he really loves is all the attention.
He loves to toy with you and screw with your head cause in his mind you’ll never know.
In his mind you’ll never find out he’s a cheater, in his mind it’s all a game.
To him you are just another pawn to move across his game of life.
With each move he gets what he wants, with each move your heart breaks into smaller and smaller pieces.
But it’s all ok because he “loves” you and you love him back.
His fake love could never understand the depth of your heart ache,
The paint that was left because you truly gave your heart to him,
And when you got it back not all the pieces were there.
Just fragments, shards of a fragile glass heart that was once yours.
Then you gave it away only to have it returned full of hate and resentment.
He cheated on you but he wants you back so that does not make it ok.

This was really good. I relate to it too and what I don't understand was ..... I am so much prettier than the girl my ex cheated on me with. was it because I wouldn't give myself to him? oh well. I found someone better. hahaha..... but I dont get to see him very often. D*mnit.
