Isn’t it funny, you give your all to someone, they take it for granted only to act like you’re doing something wrong to them when you pack up your heart and leave.
They see you pour as much time as you can only to make excuses as to why they couldn’t do it themselves.
They watch you overcome things to be better to them only for them to settle into the “that’s just the way I am” mindset.
They watch you sacrifice friendships, maybe jobs or careers to be with them, only for them to make you feel selfish when it’s their turn to do the same.
Isn’t it funny, they only want to show you that they want you when you just don’t want them.
Isn’t it funny now that he acts like a victim on some days but then acts like he doesn’t need you on other days. ‘Overly emotional’, the same words he used on you when you would get emotional fighting for the dead relationship between the two of ya’ll.
There’s nothing funny about heartbreak but it’s funny how some people only see you when you’re gone or on your way out.
If he didn’t recognize you falling out of love, even when you made it clear to him, that’s on him. Maybe he needs this poem.
But you, let this poem be a reminder that you persevered, you sacrificed, and you waited until you couldn’t wait any more to leave.
You’re tired, your soul is tired, and I’m tired for you. This poem from Ashes of Her Love is to remind you that even if he’s playing victim, he’s not the victim here.
It’s to remind you to keep disregarding the ‘I miss you’, to not let guilt trap your mind and consider going back, to not feel like you gave up on something that could’ve been.
It had enough time but nothing beautiful grew, instead everything kept dying. Love is not just about loving, it’s also about being loved.
