Without It, You Have Nothing

One night, knowing full well that I was in a relationship, my ex-boyfriend called my cell phone. He asked me to come over so we could talk. Well, I fell into the trap, believing he just wanted to talk some things through. One thing led to another, and we ended up in bed. While there, my cell phone went off. I wanted to answer it but couldn't because he was being so loud. So, I pressed "ignore" for the first time ever. I came to find out that it had been my current boyfriend calling and looking for me. I love my man, but I let it happen with my ex. I feel like I used my man and betrayed his trust. That's what it's all about — trust. Without that, you have nothing. Don't make that mistake.
