I wanted to write to you how I felt. That my hands trembled when I told you ‘no more’. I reminded myself that I deserved better. I listened to the songs that made my eyes tear up until they didn’t. I allowed it to fade. I built a home within myself again, and realized I didn’t long for it to change anymore. I grew out of wanting you to desire me. It took me 26 days until it no longer hurt.
People come and they go. I wanted to write to you how I felt – wanting you stay.
