Almost Lovers

Prompt- Almost Lovers – by A Fine Frenzy

We were lovers for a while
you cheated though I did not know
we continued being lovers though
someone told me you cheated.

One day you died, unexpectedly …
no time to confront you;
left with questions,
grief and shame.

Did you love me?
Everyone knew
you cheated but me.

I loved you,
you hurt me.

Now that you are gone,
sad to say,
it was a relief.
I got over it,
but you played with me.
