Day Eight – a song that reminds you of your “first love”
That would be my first husband. God. He was a disaster and I was going to save him. He was such a tortured soul, sooooo mis-understood, no one loved him, weep, moan, fake tears.
I can look back on it all now with the cynicism of my years, but at the time it was intense, True Love. I was going to love him so much that he would straighten up, fly right and live up to his potential. I was going to be a hero!
Yeah. Didn’t work out that way at all and I ended up running for my life, toddler and dog in tow, praying he would be too busy finding his next fix to track me down and kill me like he’d promised to do if I ever left.
Nickelback’s Just to Get High is his song –
As far as I know he’s still alive. I like to think if I ever saw him again I would do him some sort of physical harm as a little payback for the things he did to me, but I would probably just duck behind a corner and hope he didn’t see me…
