When he said he wanted to leave
I helped him pack his belongings
When he said he wanted space
I gave him the keys to the door
Love does not know how to hold
He was not happy with me
I gave him an amazing gift of space
That is the only way I knew how to love him
Even though he did not reciprocate
It stung a lot letting him go
But I had to liberate him from the shackles of my love
He was free finally from my love
My love suffocated him so he says
It was too real too genuine too authentic
But is that not the way to love anything?
Was I wrong to give it my all?
