a life lesson

i sit here thinking of everything we have been through

the good, the bad, the happy, and the sad.

no matter what we stayed by eachothers side.


there is no one to fully blame for why we've parted ways,

however that is not what i wanted, i needed us to stay.


i confided in you with things that no one knew,

there were things that i told you first before anyone else.


you became my bestfriend before my lover,

and now im left with just a memory of what once was.


i forgave you for the wrongs that you did, 

i stood by your side no matter what.

but i supposed when a person has enough, they are done.


im not easy to be with.

im stubborn, i pick fights for no reason,

im no where near perfect.

ive told you before that our relationship was simply

perfectly imperfect.


i imagined a future for us, 

getting over the drama thats current,

and getting closer and loving eachoher the way we used to.


maybe im just a dreamer,

i choose to ignore the reality of situations.


maybe that has lead me to where i am... 



i know that its over now because youve had enough.

im sorry that it had to end, but i will always love you.

you will always be my first true love.


it doesnt matter how many bad times we have had over the years,

nor will it ever matter.

i will always remember the good times that we shared.


i will no longer hope for a future with you,

and hope to start a family with you.


because now i know,

when its over...

its over.
