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.
