Every day that goes by I think about you less and less. I think about myself and what I need to do for me.
I made certain life choices because you were a priority in my life. That is no longer the case. I do not have the urge to pick up the phone and call you about something that happened. I do not hear your voice inside my head. At times you seem like a distant memory.
The pieces of me that I locked away and suppressed are starting to resurface. I gave you my heart, but not my soul for it was mine to keep. For the first time in a long time I see myself in the mirror. I see a person looking back who is kind, beautiful and smart.
I am asking what do you need to be happy for the first time. I am letting go because I cannot cling to the past like I used to. I have accepted my future and it is one where you do not exist. There is nothing left in me to give you for you took it all.
Letting out a deep sigh I realize there is hope and possibility after all.
