That’s not me standing right beside him. That’s not me, and it’s not supposed to be. Not now. Not anymore.
So yes. I was selfish. But I was selfless too.
I hope we can stay in each other’s lives, in one way or another. I’ve told you that before, I think. But if not, I wish you a full life.
You’ve left part of yourself in the different parts of your life. You’ve become a different version of the person you’ve left behind. Maybe that is why it is so hard for us to move on sometimes because we’ve left pieces of ourselves behind everywhere we’ve been.
We’ve reached two separate paths, like Robert Frost said.
But divided you cannot conquer both.
Goodbye to any possibility of butterflies, sparks, and fireworks.
Love is never convenient. You don’t say I love you because it’s beneficial, you say it because you mean it.
You said you’re content. Are you really? Or are you just used to him being on the side of your life? Is this contentment that you’re feeling now?
I’m always terrified my baggage is what will take down the plane,
The only means I have to travel somewhere new.
Our love was so powerful that I know it was once in a lifetime. They wonder how I got so lucky; ask where they can find that kind of love. I say I don’t know.
