and just like that, it was over. although it had been over before. but it was the end of all ends of us, all of our loose threads were cut off and thrown out, left to be dumped in a landfill somewhere far away. somewhere that we will never find. it’s for the best. with feelings neutral, we texted our goodbyes. back and forth messages, you told me you love me. you said you miss me. but a part of my heart knew it wasn’t okay.

and just like that, it was over. although it had been over before. but it was the end of all ends of us, all of our loose threads were cut off and thrown out, left to be dumped in a landfill somewhere far away. somewhere that we will never find. it’s for the best. with feelings neutral, we texted our goodbyes. back and forth messages, you told me you love me. you said you miss me. but a part of my heart knew it wasn’t okay.

it wasn’t okay to keep these loose ends between us, hanging onto each other with all of our might, knowing we will never be meant to be. knowing we could never make it work, despite the effort, the tug and pull on the rope of what we were. that will never be us, again.

we tried once, we tried a second time, and we tried many more, but i don’t want to try again. i don’t want to try for a tenth time, or a fifteenth. no one deserves that many chances.

sometimes i think we will run into each other, at the end of a bridge in our lives, and we will start over from there, but i don’t think i will ever see you in the same light as i did in october november and december of our young lives.

because we failed as lovers, and your trust wavered, and i was the only one that you could blame. you will never change, and i don’t want to prove myself right of that statement in the future when i knew, together, we have nothing to gain. -k.durn
