An ode to my ex - the man I loved, the idea I still love.

New Year's Resolutions

by prokatstination

Another year, another shed tear

I've passed the time, but there's nothing that matches your sublime peace

Being with you was heaven

Your heart made mine beat, but without you I'm lost in a sea of lost rhythm I feel the heat turn to ice

When I see you with him

With her

With anyone.

Because I know you'd rather be with a rabid dog

Than me

But I get it.

I totally get it.

I'm adrift without your rhythm

lost without your guide to heaven. But I get it.

I totally get it.

Hence my New Year's Resolution

I'm letting you go.

You were my Everest,

my unclimbable idea of love, peace, acceptance.

All I ever wanted to do was climb into your heart and stay

But that's not today Or yesterday. Or even when I said, "Hey."

I totally get it.

So I'm descending from my icy mountain of obsession. I can't keep clinging to your rhythm. I'm fucking tired of being lost without your heartbeat to lead me through the darkness.

I'm deleting your number

Changing the locks to my heart Erasing your path so I can find my own.

Tomorrow.

@bernardtwindwil Thank you!! Now I just need to follow through... (It's the perfect opportunity to break the string of broken resolutions of years past.)

In the end, you made a healthy decision. A song goes, "There's a hundred more like you but don't be blue. There'll be a thousand 'fore I'm through." This was well written. It was charming in that it was in the vernacular of the millennials. Great poem!!!!
