    That day came when i clicked
    And all of a sudden
    i just
    didn't want you anymore
    i couldn't handle you always not knowing
    us never growing
    The reaching out
    only to have you
    Not understand
    I gathered that when I was ready to leave you
    It would be all dramatic and I would cry and
    yell at you for your stupidity
    and we would leave and I would be miserable for weeks
    But it didn't happen that way
    i said goodbye for the last time
    In a text message that you
    didn't respond to
    And I just assumed
    you were gone as
    quick as you came
    and I admit
    i felt lame
    But not broken
    like I thought I would
    I'm sorry this one
    isn't all dramatic like my other pieces
    i just had to tell this
    one like it is
    He's gone for a lifetime
    and i sent him away
    I thought about crying
    but it didn't seem right
    so instead I smile
    Because I followed my heart for once
    And though it would seem I just threw away
    Four years I feel like
    I just gained a lifetime
    It's scary going into
    Life without him
    But it must be done
    I can't hold on anymore
    It was taking all my strength and
    i was becoming weak
    the writing was on the wall the whole time
    i just decided to read it
    Something inside of me will always yearn for him
    But I know now that this is not enough to sustain a life
    or a relationship
    I pray blessings upon his life
    Hopefully one day he'll find his wife
    But for right now he needs to concentrate on his life
    And me I need to start living mine
    You know what I mean????????????
