Although it was so hard to say goodbye, and I cried so much
Now that you’re gone, I feel like a weight has been lifted from me.
I don’t have to be afraid of seeing you with your mistress anymore, nor do I have to think about how often you’re together because you’re worlds apart now.
And even though I can’t see you most days and continue to make work with you in person, I know I still can online, and that’s something.
I guess what I’ve realized most is that yeah, I wasn’t the mistress.
But the mistress and that romantic love is temporary, and you and I both know it wasn’t going to last.
But friendship, collaboration, brotherly bonds: that can very easily last a long time. And that’s worth more than a two month fling. That’s worth infinitely more.
I just have to convince myself of that.
