“I would love nothing more for you to come with me but I’m not asking that of you. As for me, I leave in a few hours and never look back.”
“So that’s it huh? You just leave and act like this never happened?”
“Fuck no, I’ll never forget what we had and if I’m honest I hope that one day you will allow me to bring you home with me where I think you belong. I’m prepared to make up my mistake for the rest of my life, whenever you decide to give me a chance.”
“You said you would never ask for a second chance,” I mentioned throwing his own promise back in his face.
“I know what I said.”
“You never planned to tell me. You just thought the dick was so good, the love was strong, and your money was long enough to just have me eating out the palm of your hand until we got to the Maldives. Kitty ruined that plan and now you’ve added another lie.”
“And now I’m asking for a third chance. That was the last lie you will ever receive from the same mouth that makes claims of love. I’m not about to sit in your face and pretend that what I did wasn’t fucked up because it was. I won’t sit here and pretend that I wasn’t looking out for myself with my lies, because I was. I won’t tell you that what you’ve been told ain’t true because it is. I won’t tell you that leaving you will be easy or something I planned for it because that’s not the truth.
I love you and I knew I would from the minute we established eye contact. I want you to come with me, but I want you to do so willingly. You know the truth about me and now all I can do is hope that the man I’ve shown you this entire time still resonates and speaks to your heart. I took a chance today and it was my last. I’m a rich fucking man right now and I still lost. Because from the look on your face I know this is goodbye. And I gotta live with it.”
