I love you, I do.. as a friend. I was never in love with you, it was never close. I never liked being treated as an item, a possession. You can find so many girls who would love that, I am not one of them. I am a different person than you think…you are so wrong about me. I am stronger than you believe, I can do more than you trust I can do. I don’t need you, we don’t work…we never have.
I met someone new. (Technically, I met him while I was with you. Oops.) You’ll meet him soon enough. It feels like he was always there though he wasn’t even close, like we are perfect for each other. My heart was made to belong to him and his to me, I’m sure about it. More sure than I’ve ever been about anything.
You won’t like him. You’ll say he’s weak, you’ll say he’s whipped, you’ll say he’s not really a man. Well, I’ll let you in on a secret. He’s more than a man that you’ll ever be if you don’t drop the “better than you” act. I’ll let you in on another secret, I’ve always hated your arrogance. I was always embarrassed to be around you when you were showing off, and I hated blindly agreeing with you. I won’t do it anymore.
Admit it, you never loved me. You loved the idea of me.. you tore me apart, you loved to make me hurt. I was never yours. When we were happy we were really happy, but.. that was so rare, I can’t believe I didn’t see it sooner.
You’ll find someone that makes you happy.. just be careful. Remember me, remember my unhappiness. Don’t love your work more than your partner, don’t let it get that far. Money and sex? They don’t equal love. Love comes from the heart, love takes time and communication.
Love is that laugh when your partner wasn’t funny at all. It’s that smile when you’re just sitting there in silence. It’s the butterflies in your stomach just because you pictured their eyes looking into yours. Love is an intertwining of souls, it’s a connection of lives.. you can’t force love, I’ve learned that now. Love is unexplainable, unforgettable.
I truly hope you find your love, because I’ve found mine.
I will tell you, everything. I promise you this..
