I wrote this poem after finally deciding it was time to let my ex-girlfriend go. I was holding on to baggage which weighed me down mentally and emotionally. I am unsure why I was still feeling attached to her after 11 months apart, but I couldn’t make the feelings stop.
I kept reminiscing our times together—really good times. I thought I could somehow make it work again. Honestly, I wanted to.
But I realized, as good a chapter as it was, it was time to turn the page. I realized I was no longer the one holding her heart—no longer the key to her happiness.
I still miss the friendship we had; we were best friends for so long. However, I am beyond happy she has found someone who completes her. I am overjoyed she is happy.
I wish her the best with all of my heart.
I hope this poem touches you if you are in a situation similar to mine. It is a rough bridge, but it’s possible to cross.
