“To the End of Love”

The hardest thing I’ve ever had to do was let you go

No sacrifice has ever compared to that

But it’s odd that I’ve never dreamt of you

If I had, it would probably kill me

And maybe that’s why I haven’t

It’s bad enough that you’ve become a waking nightmare

And it’s bad enough that every waking thought is spent on you

Especially now that you’ve long since forgotten about me

But what’s worse is that I still care

I still love you as much today as I ever have before

But why, I don’t know

You told me you were crazy when we first met

And I accepted that fact

Hell, I even embraced it

But “crazy” doesn’t explain what you did to us

And that, as an explanation, I cannot accept

It doesn’t excuse not knowing right from wrong

And it doesn’t justify the means to an end

All I know of you now is your cruelty

The cruelty of speaking on that which you know nothing about

The belief that you are someone else, and I am no one at all

The lies that you told yourself to help you sleep at night

And all of this, and nothing else, could make you put things right between us

You’ve reached into my soul and touched my heart

Because I was fool enough to open myself to you

And whatever you had on your fingers left a stain that cannot be removed

But for the briefest time, we felt like two hearts beating as one

A merging of one soul in two earthly forms

And your heart was a place that I called home

But only when there was room enough

And you may not want me in your life now

But you’re still very much a part of mine

And I cannot pretend that we are strangers

Not when you were all too real to me

But we do give birth to our own impunity

Particularly in times of disparity

And hesitation is often so abundant in love

And so much more could’ve been

If you were only honest with yourself

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!

    I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. 🙂
    I have even created an Instagram account for them ( https://www.instagram.com/tayo_home/ ) and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Keep up the good work on your blog.

    Regards
