I close my eyes, then I won’t see the love you don’t feel when you’re holding me.
And I still fall asleep to the thought of you kissing me, and it makes me feel like I’ll never truly get over you
Your thoughts at two in the morning are the worst. Go to bed at nine and wake up at five. When you shower, make sure you scrub all the dirt. Wear make up, be sharp and be punctual. Read books on anything that interests you. Write all your thoughts down. When you’re asked to do something, make sure it’s done to utter perfection. Dress however you want to. You’ve always wanted a tattoo? Go get one. Take those surfing lessons you’ve been meaning to. Learn to make soup. Work out and get the body you’ve been dreaming about forever. Fill your day with enough things and make sure you don’t have any time to think about him. Don’t think about him. Don’t think about him. Don’t think about him at all.
Wanting him is hard to forget, loving him is hard to regret, losing him is hard to accept, even with all the hurt I’ve felt, letting go is the most painful yet.
Dear *insert lover’s name here*,
I can’t be with you anymore if I cannot call you mine. It pains me knowing your touch was not meant for me. Your smile, not meant for me. You, weren’t made for me. These past few weeks have been fun, but I promised I would not fall in love this time. I lied. I’ve seen the way you look at me compared to other girls; there is no tenderness in your gaze. You’re only affectionate in bed, and then you leave. With no official title between us I suppose this isn’t a breakup, but here I am writing to you as if you’ll care. I can’t put myself through the pain of watching you walk out my door without even a turn of your head. Sometimes loves are not made to be reciprocated. This is what I’ll tell myself. This is my last goodbye to you.
*insert your name here*
