Goodbye is always the hardest part

Updated on July 10, 2014

I have loved you for years,

through the hurt and pain,

through the fights and disasters.

We have found a content place,

where we are good.

We are familiar with each other,

our body and souls.

Still I find something is missing.

I look at the window at night and ask,

"is this all?"

Our spark is gone,

Lust is left in our past.

I want to be in love with you.

I do.

But I'm not .

Times are getting harder.

We are coming up short.

I'm not happy.

You tell me we will have forever.

I smile and nod it off.

I don't know if I can take forever

To be honest this isn't easy.

The only way to say it is to say it .

Know that I want you to be happy,

more than anything.

I would never want to hurt you,

but I can't do this.

      Sometimes letting go is the kindest thing to do. I enjoyed reading your poem very much.

      I felt the pain of the one causing the pain. Very nice.
