Because no matter the cost,
I loved you through the storm,
But you gave me nothing but pain.
My eyes hazy with unshed tears for you,
And my heart heavy with hurt by you,
I walked away.
I didn’t know it then, but I know it now.
That you were the reason my soul never seemed to smile,
And you were the cause my heart never truly felt at peace.
I was at war with myself.
Should I battle my love for you,
Or should I battle myself for loving you?
I never knew,
Because at the end of the day,
I didn’t matter, not for you anyway.
Neither did what I held for you.
I let you break me,
Thinking that you would put me back together.
But you broke me in such a way that even the angels could do nothing but watch.
So, I left you,
I left you and I walked away.
And I have never felt such an immense calm before.
I don’t regret it, leaving you that is.
And now I know that love never comes without consequences,
Some we are willing to take, some we are not.
Because life is not a a fairytale.
