    I love him enough to know that
    i have to let him go
    for i can no longer
    ignore the feelings i have inside
    for this man
    i would have died
    i love him both inside and out
    but sometimes love is blind
    and we run from truth
    not wanting to face the facts
    that we already knew.
    I thought i had something special
    and yes i truly did
    but he kept trying to change me
    and i just didn't understand
    was i not the same person that caught his eye
    the person he fell in love with
    did i suddenly change and not tell myself
    what can i do to ensure him that he has me
    is he too ensicure to see
    that i could have been his soul mate
    if he didnt try to change me
    So now its over and the damage has been done
    the thought of us getting back together is somewhere standing idely in the backgound waiting for him to realize
    that i used to love him different than i love him now.

    Icandi, I can relate to this flow deeply. I've been here before. I can feel the regret, the hurt, all the emotion in every line. Sometimes you just have to let go, and keep going, the love never ceases---it's just different. Thanks for sharing.

    Girl im feeling this soo much ,cause im presently trying to elevate myself from such a situation. Love is such a fickle emotion, but some time it so hard to get rid of.
