I gave up…
I gave up because you did.
I gave up because you stopped.
I gave up because you didn’t want it.
I gave up because I knew better.
I gave up because I was wrong for all the right reasons.
You stopped it all.
You stopped caring.
You stopped loving.
You stopped being the one.
You stopped being the person I swore I knew.
You stopped everything that I thought was the truth.
&& then I stopped living.
I stopped believing everything that you fed to me.
I stopped believing all the lies you told me.
I stopped caring so much about all the things that did not matter.
I stopped because you stopped.
But I moved on…
&& one day you will do the same.
(Even though, you already have…)
One day you will show the world that it was nothing but a lie.
One day my friend it will all be clear.
One day I will be able to hear your name and not shed a tear.
One day I will laugh at all the mistakes I have made with you.
One day I will learn from them.
I will be okay.
I will be better.
I will forget.
I will move on.
I will not look back.
I will be happy again.
&& when that one day does decide to show up, I will be there.
I will be there with my suitcase in hand and on my way.
On my way to a place that I never knew existed.
A place that was meant for me.
A place that I will make my own.
A place where I belong.
