This Is Why We Can’t Get Back Together

It has been several months since we broke up. Then out of the ordinary, you asked me if we could get back together. I looked at you with sorrowful eyes. When I suddenly felt a mix of love, longing, and confusion.

I began to wonder if we could still work things out. I imagined multiple scenarios. That if I welcomed you back with open arms. I could forget why we broke each other’s hearts. As I saw myself trying to remember the reason why we fell in love in the first place.

But with all honesty, there are moments where I miss you like crazy. When the longing knocks on my door, I can almost hear your laughter. As I welcome myself into the warmth of your embrace. I would brush my fingers across your hair. Whisper every word behind your ear. I would act as if you never left. If it were that simple, I would run back to you in a heartbeat. But in reality, things are much more difficult. So I guess we can no longer go back to the way we were.

Believe me, I will always love you. You were a greatly significant part of my life. Yet our situation is now beyond repair. But I am also sorry for all the hurt I’ve caused you.

However, we cannot destroy something and pretend we do not see the damage across the rubble. Since our love was a war zone, in which we lost the fight. I see friendship as the only solution to keep the peace.

Truth be told, I did love you. Yet some things are better kept far apart. I am sorry. But the only reunion we will ever have is the forgiveness I will keep deep within my heart. I sincerely apologize. Though I still love you, we cannot get back together. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
