“Maybe someday we’ll be together.”
What a lie.
I broke you and you broke me.
We need to fix ourselves now
instead of wishful thinking.
Let’s not break up over external reasons
We are why we’re ending.
Let’s move on
without wondering whether it’s the right time to get back together.
Let me look back at us with fond memories
instead of remembering the painful months/years I spent chasing you.
I don’t want to stop myself
from pursuing new people anymore
in the cursed name of monogamy
wondering if you still love me.
I don’t want my belief in soul mates
to blind me
so I don’t let new people into my life.
Maybe you are my soul mate,
the kind that revealed my layers
but doesn’t overstay his welcome.
I fall in love ruthlessly
I let go cruelly
I am the permeable membrane
but I refuse to merge with you.
Let me breathe
Forget about rekindling fires
Remember how to close chapters.
