It felt like we were broken up long before we uttered the words. Long before we had "the talk". I felt you disappearing further and further away. Further away from my thoughts, not constantly consuming me anymore. Further away, deeper down in my heart, where I've buried many before you. The ones before. They were never forgotten, they aren't gone. Many of them is a valuable lesson. Some a happy memory. Most of them is a sad goodbye.. An ache that used to hurt so much, cause so many tears and sleepless nights. And now you are slowly, but surely, taking your place beside them. You are becoming one of them and I can't seem to stop it. Maybe that's what time does to love. Maybe it's our choices that took us here. Maybe our road was always supposed to end here. Maybe it was already written in the stars. It hurts now. And it will hurt for a while. I know this from experience. Maybe a little while, maybe a long. Maybe a part of me will hurt forever. But one day, no matter what, I will be the sun after the storm, ready to shine again.
