From Our Readers: Love Is Not the Same as Owning Someone

I have loved you, and I love you that's why I am letting go.

I don't know why and I don't know how I get into this cage that's supposed to be my home? I don't know why I wanted to be free from this prison when I was longing for this embrace to take me into a different horizon. I don't know why I want to get out from this chest, from the love that I always treasured.

Maybe it's not you; it was me who lost a hold on this knot. It was me who's afraid to stay because I know that soon enough we'll give up this fight. Maybe it was me whose love is not enough. It was me whose happiness is not found in your arms anymore. Maybe I lost myself from the love that I dreamt of after all this time.

Maybe it's not you; it was me who lost a hold on this knot. It was me who's afraid to stay because I know that soon enough we'll give up this fight.

I don't know how I will put my feelings into words. How will I say that this love, it's not our novel is not what I want to write anymore; I want to have my own poem? How will I tell you that the flame I have for you has faded into ashes? How will I tell you these without causing you so much pain? How will I tell you these scars and stains?

I have loved you but I need to bid you goodbye, not because all I want is my freedom but because I want you to be free and to be loved. I'm afraid that if won't let go, our story would just be a game—a game that's full of pretentions, a game instructed by lies, a game of losing one's self, a game of imprisonment, a game of black and grey, a game that both of us might lose. I had loved you, and I love you that's why I am letting go because maybe this would be the best for the both of us. We may part ways but you wouldn't lose me. After all, we've been friends before we came into this plot.

I have loved you, and I love you that's why I am letting go because maybe this would be the best for the both of us.

What we had could be one of the best chapters of my story, but I think this chapter has to end and I have to move on to the next page of my life. And I am hoping that soon you can write your next chapter on your own, with a brand new journey and with your happy ending. Even without me.

They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted?

I have forgotten when was the last time we shared a smile - the last time when I saw the glow in your eyes and the last time when you whispered an I love you to me. I have forgotten when, but here I am - writing to you again.

I do not know if you will read this or you will just add this one to my proses and poems that you left unread, but you see, I am still hoping. I am mailing the pain of us to the gods out there - hoping they can take the pain away. I should have gotten over you, but instead of forgetting and accepting our ending, I am writing about us in tissue sheets, carving about us on trees, telling about us on the back of my journals, hoping that a thousand or a million write ups about us, can make me forget about what happened.

I am writing, waiting for the point where I can no longer write anymore, for I have none to tell - but when? I have nothing in me anymore, but the memories of us - and no matter how hard I try put those to its own grave, the memories grow back like lilies in the swamp - painful and beautiful at the same time.

No matter how hard I try to silence those and put it at the back of my mind, those ring back, playing like the favorite song we used to listen. They say heartbreaks turn into poetry and that is what happening to us - but poetry should be dulcet and dreamy, why does ours sound like pain and agony? They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted? Darling, I guess not.
