I didn’t know I could love like that.
I thought I knew what love was. I was wrong, so wrong.
But you showed me, and it was so wonderful.
Then you walked away.
After all the laughter, love, sweat and tears, you left. You said it was too much, that you weren’t ready to settle down. That you needed time to grow and change.
You apologized for treating me badly. You said we’d still be friends.
You come and go in my life. You smile and kiss me, then you tell me to leave you alone.
I can’t keep going back and forth. I love you, but I can’t do this anymore.
Thank-you for showing me love. For showing me what I’m capable of. For showing me that love is possible.
Now, please, say goodnight. Please, leave me alone. I don’t want to share another kiss with you, just to say goodbye again. I don’t want to feel you pressed against me just to have to disappear again.
Thank you. Now goodnight, and goodbye.
