I will not let myself be defined by a man who walked away.
Heartbreak is not meant to be a permanent resident.
And why is it that I’ve become so accustomed
to the thought of my life
without you in it?
There’s no way you can erase the image of someone who was once special to you. There’s no way you can totally forget your past. And there’s no way that my name doesn’t exist in your heart.
I switched off the lights hoping
for darkness to swallow
my feelings for you.
But I was a fool
to trust it.
Because darkness ate me whole.
Darkness made me remember you.
Letting him go is like twisting the knives inside your chest deeper and deeper. But you have to do it. You have to endure the pain so you can eventually set yourself free.
I miss gasping for air but I do not miss searching for my own sounds.
You still cross my mind though my whole being is set to move forward. You still cross my mind as if there’s a force stopping me from breaking free.
In your worst heartache you will learn how to empower yourself. You’ll learn everything it is that you need in order to thrive and you’ll learn that it is inside of you.
Despite the hurt, she promised herself to love again.
