Letters on the Beach Pt. 1

Ariane walked along the beach with a numbness running through her veins. She had been walking for two hours deciding on her next move. She was beautiful with long golden hair and big brown doe eyes and the sweetest smile that made her dimples pop out on each cheek. She had a naturally curvy hourglass figure that had an air of sensuality as she walked. Men loved her and women were jealous of her. She was very lonely though, and not trusting of people. She wasn’t like that before she met David though. David brought her to this miserable place of separation from herself and others .

She was walking on the beach planning her escape from him. She was scared for many reasons. One of them being that she would miss him as much as he hurt her she still cared about him. She felt like she wasted what seemed to be forever in this miserable relationship. Six years destroyed by a man who didn’t really love her, but was only using her for sex and to boost his ego. She gave up everything for him and she couldn’t understand why he didn’t feel the same way about her. She ended up feeling lonely and drained, just an empty shell of who she used to be . As if he just stole her spirit away in his twisted and psychotic dance and never gave it back to her again. He had used her for her beauty and her money, and the way she made him feel and it left her feeling worthless. It wasn’t always that way though.

When they first met he had promised her the world. Everything you can think of he told her he would give to her and she would be his queen. That didn’t last long and she ended up not getting anything that he told her he would give her. He lied and manipulated her until she believed him. She only started believing him when she actually fell in love with him. Then she was blinded by his sweet talking charm. She loved the way he would put love notes in her pockets when she least expected it and the way he looked soulfully into her eyes when they made love. At least she believed that he looked at her that way.

She would have done anything for that man. Why couldn’t he see that? He would ridicule her and degrade her after awhile of being together. Making her feel as if it was her fault that he was so cruel. She did make some mistakes which made her feel guilty and made her believe that she deserved his anger towards her.

When they first met, she didn’t want to be with him. She used every excuse in the book not to be. She was heartbroken from her last relationship with Jack and decided that she was not going to love anyone for a long time. Love in her mind didn’t exist anymore. She was so in love with Jack that it drove her crazy. After the five years they spent together he disappeared on her and she couldn’t deal with it. She missed him terribly and searched for him until she was too tired to search anymore. Finally, a year after her wait she ran into one of his friends Chuck who had nothing good to say about him. He said Jack was a cheater and using women to get what he wants. That he did have good things to say about her, but they were from so long ago.

I am quite sure you know that even at the highest levels that's the most common disappointment in life today and hear the deep side of it both the men and women are actually getting hit this way .

Nice but sadly the truth about life today.

Bless.

PS. Be careful with the pix elation, of your pic.I think that's the way to say it.

Sky- Thanks for all your great comments and for taking the time to read my stuff. You are awesome. :) I think that yes they are disappointments for men and women in relationships that we all have to learn at some point to become smarter and eventually finding the right people to be with.

Bless - I came to accept it as being an extremely difficult undertaking after your first major try at it . Most people have never come to terms with themselves after their first major attempt. When your first was not the best teacher , it becomes a very thin line with all others.

While many people go on to believe that it's ok, they will meet someone new and easily start over , they are actually continuing unknowing to themselves.

Both male and female . That new person is also coming free of their baggage, but that was the most recent failing experience they are coming with and there is a role that it will play .

Honesty is the most important element in all relationships , and all our previous experiences should be allowed to teach us all that much needed way to recognize honesty and let it be your guide.

Bless Caroline.

Sky you are right. Honesty is the most important element to relationships.

Honesty and giving with no thought of getting, for inevitably "what goes around, comes around." Two who love for the delight and happiness of the other are always a winning pair.

Selfishness defeats any attempt to master loving another person. "If ingratitude is a sin, true gratitude is a noble virtue" (this latter half quote is from Thomas S. Monson.)

Perspycacious- You are so right. Giving just to give is what love is really about. Thank you for reading my hub.

Trust is important in love and care is another factor that is needed.No relationship can survive without both.

The person who loves us has to put us first. If they do and we know it, then we feel the same and love flourishes. Trust is so important in any relationship. This is great. I am looking forward to part 2.

carolinemd21, I can absolutely relate to the feelings Ariane had about not wanting to love anyone again due to past relationship pain and her inability to let go of Jack. I think your writing is natural and nice, and you tell a story about stuff everyone has gone through. Thanks for being open
