Us vs. Me
I could have chosen to be with you,
I could have chosen for us to still be together.
But then I would not have been able to be true to either of us,
the only part of me in that US would have been my hollow body.
It’s not that I don’t love you,
in fact you are that one great love of my life,
the one which everyone talks about.
I knew it from the moment I met you.
And that is one of the main reasons why I chose to walk away.
I wanted to be my best self
because you deserve the best.
I wanted to be able
to show you the kind of love you showed me.
I wanted to not feel guilty
every time you did something remarkable for me
because I knew I could never be that amazing
even with myself.
I wanted to be at peace with myself
before making any decisions with you.
I wanted to be as open and giving as you
but I was never even that accepting to myself.
I love you but I don’t even know what love is.
I want to love myself the way you love me.
That’s why in the battle of Me vs. Us,
I chose me.
Because it was the best for Us.
Thank you for reading.
