To You And The Woman Who Now Has Your Heart

I guess all the promises meant nothing and I was just a fool to think that they would hold up.

We had a good run, you and I. We had some of the best times together and sadly they had to come to an end. All possibilities of creating better memories with one another ceasing to exist.

We started out as strangers and now we’ve come full circle.

I can’t blame you for wanting to go; at some point so did I. Maybe we just reached our limit.

Our expiration date had arrived and we could no longer go on.

I knew this day would come. The day that you found someone else. Of course, even if I expected it, doesn’t mean that it still wouldn’t come as a shock when the day finally came, but I’m not the type of person to deny someone their happiness. I’m not the type of person to stand in the way of what could be something magical.

I’m the person who supports whatever you do and even cheers you on despite everything that has happened. I’m the person you can actually come to for advice because I know you, even though now all I can do is forget and pretend like I never knew you.

There are a few things that I don’t want you to do, for both of our sakes. Don’t think about me. Don’t ever mention my name. Don’t tell her about me. Don’t look back at the memories that we’ve made, just focus on her. It’ll be easier this way.

Whatever happened between us should stay between us. She doesn’t need to know. Because all that matters is that now you’re hers.

It’s better that it stays that way.

I’m genuinely happy for you but there are still things that I wish you could do for me. I want you to treat her better than you did me. Give her all the attention, the love, the affection that you couldn’t give me.

I want you to realize that I made a better person. I want the person who now holds my place in your heart to silently thank me and give me the credit for preparing you to be with her. I want you to find whatever was missing, in our time together, with her.

I want you to grow and I want you to find the happiness that you deserve despite all odds. I want the two of you to be happy together. I want the two of you to be the couple that we could never be. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
