Letting Go [Poem]
I can’t be your expectations and what you expect me to be.
I can’t live my life for you and me.
I can’t shoulder your issues and insecurities.
I can’t hold out waiting, hoping and wishing things will change as time passes by.
I can’t be your dreams, goals and aspirations.
And, i can’t make you go after them either.
I can’t pretend to feel what i don’t,
I can’t put my life on hold and i won’t.
I need to breathe again,
I need to be free to be me.
See, i love you, but i love me more.
I want to feel again
…to be in love again
…to be happy.
I want you to have those things too,
it just seems we can’t provide them for each other.
I don’t want to hurt you, disappoint you or fail to live up to the expectations set for me…
However, I’m tired of carrying this weight on my shoulders.
