I’m ready to cut you out of sentences. Remove you from memories. Finish that chapter of my life.
Your birthday came and went.
At first, I kept thinking why the 26th felt so close to me. I couldn’t think. Then, I was on the bus to work and saw it written out. August 26, 2014. It dawned on me. You. It’s your bday. I was sad. I wondered if I should wish you a happy bday or not. I had already deleted your number out of my phone since it had been months since we spoke. I knew of one way…
Instead I went on FB and saw three of my friends were born on the same day. I actually felt relief. Now, I could associate that day with different feelings. Different thoughts.
So, it’s time. It’s time to finish what we started. What I started. 9 yrs. I’m done. When everything is finalised, a whole decade would have passed. It’s time to make new memories. To move pass the pain. I’m in a better place so to speak. I owe a lot to you, but I owe no more. I will always love you. I know that. We took vows for a reason, at least I did. And I know, in your own way, you had a reason too, but let’s not keep fooling my head. It’s over. Done. Goodbye.
