I Love You Even If You No Longer Love Me

I Love You Even If You No Longer Love Me

The day I realized that you no longer want me in the way you used to was the day I knew that we were over forever. I knew that the love you had to give me had already run out and it hurts. It hurts because I want you and love you more than I ever have and now it has turned into horrible pain.

I remember feeling as though I was the person you cared most about in this world and now I feel like a bother, a small piece of what’s important to you. I know this is only the beginning of the pain and tears, and I know that I will only grow more hurt with time.

I wish you still loved me like I love you because I want nothing more than to be wrapped in your arms and comforted in this moment.

I want you forever and I have always. I thought the feelings were mutual. I don’t know why this happened, but I remember feeling so lost as to where I stood with you.

As brutally honest as it sounds, I know now that you could never love me like that again. I see it in the way you text me only to get back the things you left in my apartment and the way you never ask me how I’m doing. My heart still skips beats when I see your name pop up on my phone. I haven’t gotten around to changing your funny contact name followed by hearts.

I wish things wouldn’t have ended like this or at all because I wouldn’t be hurting right now. I would be wrapped up in the love I have for you, in the life we had together, in the future we always talked about.

Realizing you had fallen out of love with me is one of the worst experiences I’ve ever had. If I could take back anything, it would be letting you go without an explanation. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
