Strawberry Letter: He’s A Murderer, But He Has A Good Heart

Dear Morning Crew,

I’ll start this letter off right and throw everything on the table so hopefully Steve won’t chew me up into shreds! I hate to toot my own horn but hey I’m a 23-year-old woman who has done very good for herself, if you ask me. I don’t have any babies running behind me, of course I’m enough of a lady to save my little leagues for marriage. I have my own home, my own car, and a great job that I’ve been working for more than five years!

But the reason for this letter is because I’ve always been dealt TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE cards when it comes to men. I had a ROUGH and UGLY childhood. I even saw and experienced some things that I still get alone by myself and cry about. I had ABSOLUTELY NO father figure in my life so I looked for that manly figure in my MEN. So about a year and a half ago I met this guy and he had it going on. He had the thug appeal, the job(s), his own car and a conversation out this world. After about 6 months to a year I came over to his house for a late night movie and that was all she wrote. To say the least we had pillow talk several times after that and he began to open up to me.

He confessed to being a drug dealer, doing several robberies, countless home break-ins, and taking people’s lives that he felt deserved it. And he even told me that a few times he made breaking news for public shoot-out’s he had with his past rivals. Yes, I admit it frightened me a little at first. So I asked him had he done the right thing and confessed to the police and he blew me off saying that I was asking too many questions and being too nosy! But the more I got to know him I was able to look past his wrong doings and see that he has a good heart. Over the course of me being his boo I grew an enormous bulk of feelings for him.

But recently we got into a huge argument and we split up. Well, at least that’s what I’ll say even though he NEVER confirmed us as being in a serious relationship, and it broke my heart. I can’t stop thinking about him and that sexy thug appeal. For almost a month I’ve been wondering if I let my knight and shining armor get away from me. YES, YES STEVE AND SHIRLEY I HEAR YOU LOUD AND CLEAR but, despite his past I still think he’ll make a good husband for me someday!

But my real question is, should I run after my murderer/drug dealing ex and make things right before it’s too late or should I just leave our broken pieces on the floor, pick up my heart, dust it off and move on?

Signed,

THE YOUNG & CONFUSED MURDERER LOVER
