ODD-EVEn

Slowly
I’m letting go of you
And who we’ve become
After our second chance.

You’ve saved me
From drowning and dying
Your presence gave me the will
To live for even just another year.

Silently
I’m closing my eyes
And my heart
To our possibility.

But we are tainted
We are jaded
We are broken
We need to be whole on our own again.

Quietly
I’m moving forward
With your memories
But without you.

I need saving
I need life
But this time
I need to get me back
And save me.

Should you want to be alone,
Do it for the right reason.
Not because you’re jumping from one unhealthy relationship
To another complicated one.
Your freedom should be yours
And you should be responsible for it.
Not dictated by anyone or anything
But because you love yourself enough
To know that you could stand up
And you could be happy
With yourself, by yourself
And not dependent on a person.
The reason should be self-love
And contentment and simply being.
