From Our Readers: You Left Me with Your Empty Promises
I'm moving on.
I managed to let the words out, and I feel empy. I should feel mad, broken, and lost. But the thing is, there's nothing here. I love you, but I just can't endure it anymore. How many times have you said the words "don't leave me" and "I can't lose you"? And how many times have I played dumb and believed you when you promised that you'll never let me go.
When you said you loved me, I believed you. I thought you really meant it, and I still do. But it was a mistake to expect so much from someone who really had nothing to offer me.
I don't even know why you're doing this. To hurt me? To make me hope for nothing? I'm starting to be okay, so why have you decided to come back? Why do you keep on hurting me like this? That even if we've been over for a while now, you still manage to break my heart a thousand more times?
I'm tired. But you know what? Maybe if you did this a couple months ago, I would go back to you without a word. Have you ever thought about the sacrifices I made for you? I would have given you everything. Actually, I did, but you never wanted any of it. And now, I don't have anything left. I don't have anything left to give you. You've already taken it all and I'm sorry but there's just nothing left. You don't deserve to hear anything from me anymore, because people just appreciate things once they're gone.
I still love you but sometimes love isn't enough to keep your loved ones by your side. Because even if we get another shot at what we once had, at the end of the day, when times get hard, you know you wouldn't really love me enough. You'll just give me up again.
