    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
    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

    Thank you Miss Thang
    it hurts to let go
    it hurts even more when you realize they never felt quite the ssame way that u did
    but OH the sense of right that comes with knowing your gonna be ok
    and that life goes on and Love wins in the end !:p
