• An Amicable Parting

    You are the part of me that is no good, and now I’ve come to the realization that I’ve got to let you go.

    I went through the “dark times” with you, you gave me an excuse to talk to people. I noticed people liked complaining about things being too hard, or too easy, or too hot, or too cold. So I created you, the part of me that allowed me to engage in some (albeit brief) small talk with others. It was rather meaningless. It gave me a source to fill in the silence, to initiate conversation, but then abandoned me as I tried to continue.

    Yeah, I want to keep you, too. You’re like an excuse for me. But it’s a crutch, really.

    So this is goodbye. I’m sure you’ll come and visit me on one of my bad days, or when I’ve just had enough, but it’ll just be a visit.

    Because you are the part of me that brings me down. I become better without you.
    Then, to the self that makes me worse, that brings me down to some lower plane, that makes me think less and talk more, goodbye.

      Wishes, wishes, floating in my head.
      I’ll probably dream of them when I go to bed.

      Except that I don’t often have wishes, but when I do, they’re realistic and things I can manage. I suppose this is a wish, but it’s also something I’ve already done. It’s hard to change yourself, but I’m coming around.

      Also, you may think that that little prick of negativity will get to me, but it’s nothing compared to what I’ve been through. By the way, I hope that you have a better day than the one you’ve been trying to give others.

      to me that you have found some resolve. Good luck, Author. 🙂
