I will not ask you to stay

If you must go, go
I don’t need you
I will breathe (carefully) without you
I will smile (slowly) without you
I will go on (eventually) without you
I’d be much happier
If you chose to not leave,
But if you must let go, let go
And I will too

And hopefully one day 
I will teach my heart to not break
Whenever everyday thoughts 
Lead to you

I’m afraid I’m much too weak,
I’m afraid we’ll always be 
A book with the end pages ripped out,
I’m afraid I’ll always wonder,
Always ache, 
Always place everyone second to you

I’m afraid I’ll always love you

But I will not ask you to stay.

"my sadness is not
a cut for you to bandage
and it is not
a bruise for you to kiss

i am not waiting
for you to save me
i am hoping you will love me
while i rescue myself"
