I loved you with everything I had. Every ounce of love possessed was put towards you. To your body, to your heart, to your soul. When you said no more, I lost it. I lost my sanity to a boy of only sixteen years. To someone who wouldn’t let me love them, simply because they were scared. Now I know to love myself first, to love myself first and always because that is what is most important. Not to try to give away all of my love, but to share it.
You taught me the world, and now you won’t speak a word to me. I’ve changed a lot, but so have you. For the good or for the worse, no one will know. Our futures are ahead of us, but they have still yet to be defined.
It comforts me to know that I still have a future because I was stuck in one place for so long. Now things are starting to look ahead, I am excited for tomorrow and for next month and for the years that lie in front of me. Maybe I’ll have more hardship, more heartbreak, but I know I’ll be able to handle it this time.
