I’m Letting You And Everything About Us Go

I'm Letting You And Everything About Us Go
Priscilla Du Preez

I never knew heartbreaks could be this intense, not until I love you but you decided to leave me.

I love you too much that I thought I couldn’t get myself to walk away from you. In the back of my mind, losing you and letting you go was never an option for me.

I have always loved you.

But you chose to break my fragile heart. You hurt me when all I did was love you. You left me when all I wanted was for you to stay.

While I was mending your heart, you slowly broke mine. You didn’t just break my heart; you broke my trust too.

Maybe after all the love I have for you, it still wasn’t enough. Maybe, I could never be enough for you.

Yet, thank you. Thank you for making me feel that I will never be enough for you because that’s when I realized that I don’t need anybody telling me that I am never enough because I know I am.

Thank you for breaking my heart because that’s when I learned that letting go of things or people will just make me stronger.

Thank you for choosing to leave me. I may have needed you more than necessary before but you just taught that I don’t need someone to go through life. All I needed is myself.

Thank you for all the pain, the sleepless nights, the tears. And of course, thank you for the times that I was happy with you, thank you for letting me love you, thank you for being a part of my life.

Thank you for everything.

But it ends here, I’m letting you go and everything about us. You’ll stay as a memory, as a lesson. You’ll stay as someone I just loved. You may have been my first but not my last. So thank you for letting us go because deep in this fragile heart of mine, someday, I’ll find someone who will love and take care of me just as much as I loved you; or even more. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
