    A single tear
    Rolled down my face
    As I exhaled
    I stand surrounded by solace
    Remembering……….You
    I hesitate on that first step
    That will take you from my life
    I reconsider on that second step
    That will take me farther from your heart
    Until I realize
    That I was never in your heart
    I was just a port in your storm
    That drama in your life
    I was just a way to relieve the pain
    The loneliness in your bed
    I hesitate
    Remembering…….Us
    At that moment
    As I am about to lay my hand on the door knob
    I realize
    My love for you
    Was stronger than
    Your lack of convictions
    Or your discontented heart
    I cared enough to let us go
    I realized at that very moment
    My love for myself
    Was stronger than
    My lust for you
    The moment of realization
    Was so sudden and so strong
    That I staggered
    And I hesitated
    Remembering
    Me
    How it was before
    You, Us, This
    The momentum of this realization propels me forward
    Out the door
    Away from your indifference
    And into Love

    Love this peace.
    We have to love ourselves before someone else can love us, or so they say.
