    I know what I need to do.
    I need to find the strength to leave you.
    Leave this empty sad relationship that brings pain and despair

    I hold on to you, but you no longer exist and never will.
    I hold on to hope but hope no longer lives here.
    I hold on that you will change, but 5 years have gone and things will not change.
    I hold on that there will be an end to all of this madness, but this is how you are.

    It saddens me that my heart weights heavily on me
    I do not want to leave for the thought of leaving you makes the world dark
    but staying with you means accepting that the world will remain dark.

      It’s hard. I feel the same way about my relationship of 6+ years, but I’m still here because my other half will probably be unable to function without me here…yet she does need to know how to function without me. Best of luck to you.

      So many of us have been there. You already know this, but its time to go.

      It will take time to heal. Just be strong and stand your ground.

      These words run true for all types of relationships, not just for a lover. Sadly, this is true for family and friends, too. Sometimes people change and we are forced to change our relationships. Holding onto the past will get you nowhere.
