A letter to an EX

August 22nd, 2015, 6pm

We started off as two strangers meeting at the dock of a lake. I remember the blue skies, the summer breeze and him walking towards me with a smile. It all seems so far away now. We aren’t even the same people we were back then. Him, so soft spoken and carefree and me, so hopeful and ready to love.

Now he’s restless while I simply became disappointed by his lack of interest. We saw the signs of an eminent ending but still I couldn’t bear the thought of walking away.

I was hopelessly in love with you and all I wanted was to love you unconditionally. You never realized.

Now that I’ve walked away you think I owe you loyalty, explanations, love. I’m sorry to say but I owe you nothing. I don’t regret being with you because for brief moments you made me happy but I had to deny myself the freedom to be me for fear of losing you when I never even had you.

I sincerely hope that one day when you do decide to commit to someone, that you will treat her much better than you did me.
