From Our Readers: To the One Who Let Me Go
Our love used to be very beautiful and strong but you chose to let go of it.
ART Trixie Ison

Why did you have to overthink? Or maybe you truly didn't. Maybe leaving me and giving up all that we had was something that you didn't have to overthink because you thought I was ready to be exploited. I understand that you needed space, we all do and all will at some point. But wasn't the space enough for you to not stretch it to its furthermost extent? You left me floating in the most rugged folds and depths of my mind, left it with a hole that echoed with questions that only I could hear because you chose to leave them unanswered.

And the fact that hurts the most is that I would feel that hollowness whenever I hear our songs, the songs that used to mean so much to us because of the memories it held through the years. The feelings that used to be very strong, and knowing that "our" songs and memories no longer have an effect on you makes me feel even worse. Our love used to be very beautiful and strong but you chose to let go of it. Which is kind of humorous because you thought I deserved way more than you and you were willing to settle for someone less than me. Yes I know, you have her.

Our love used to be very beautiful and strong but you chose to let go of it.

I want you to remember this: One day I WILL stop hearing all the echoes, someone WILL make me smile again, and I WILL not give a damn about the current, present, and the future's past because it WILL no longer matter. You will always just be the figment of my past who chose not to be a big part of the future that we painted for what used to be us. I hope that with your decision you're doing what's best for you and not for your pride. Because 10 years from now, I don't want you to feel a void when you see me and by then I've already found the love of my life.
