    i tell you
    that the single most caring act
    that you ever committed
    was agreeing to end your relationship with me
    the single
    most
    caring
    act
    was to say no more
    to our painful
    emotional
    yet revolutionary acts of
    making love and
    emotional connections
    and
    ending that thing
    so now we joke and
    i tell you that i was trying to do dips
    and my entire body was
    shaking
    and we laugh
    but it reminds me of your muscles
    when you tell me that you do
    three sets of 20
    and i blink...smile...remember
    but move onward
    i no longer want to
    picture your tattoo's and i
    no longer want to picture your smile
    in that way
    so we laugh and
    you tell me to keep up the good work
    of
    lifting weights
    and i remember that
    the single
    most
    caring
    act
    you ever committed
    was ending your physical
    relationship with
    me

    Sometimes the end is actually the beginning. I like the way you put this work together.
