If you love something, set it free.
If it comes back to you, it's yours.

I'm the Heartbroken.


Even when I find there's a problem,
I try to look past it,
And there it goes,
Sneaking up past me,

How am I supposed to come back?

If you truly loved, you wouldn't let them go.

If you tell them you don't love them, then they're free to go.

Why should they stay?

And why do I feel guilty?

I'm the victim.

I was given my notice.

And I moved on.

Sort of.

I don't even know what to call what I'm doing anymore.

But I know for a fact I'm not coming back.

I have no reason to.

Come back and watch it unfold on me a second time?

No, I learned about that a long time ago.

So I wait in the darkness, letting the light under the door blind me, until I'm brought out again.

As it always happens.

But who am I to complain?

I've been left in the past. Told it was for my own good so I could find a better life. I continued to come back but over and over no matter how much I forgave, how much I gave up, or how much I tried it was never good enough... There was always someone better. So the obvious conculsion is I wasn't loved or he'd never have let me go.

Beautiful piece btw. :3

Well, I'm glad it worked out for you! (that is, if I read it correctly, about the "someone better" part.)


Thank you!

Actually I haven't found someone yet. But if I keep positive maybe I'll meet the one someday. If not I've always seen myself as a possible cat horder haha.

Whoever said if you love something set it free obviously didn't love whatever it is they set free enough.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

ouch. I've felt this before. I'm not the best when it comes to picking a guy.

Apparently, I'm not the best at finding a girlfriend either...

That was deep, bro. I've never felt heartbroken before but I can feel the pain of it through your words.

Trust me, you don't want to experience this. But I'm glad I could let you glimpse the feeling. Thank you.
