I couldn't wait to send these to you...

to lose you as a
love
was painful.

to lose you as a
friend
is equally painful.

but lost you are.

the walls are sooo high,
and that finely honed saber
I had when I began storming

i tried, i tried.
i cried, i died.

It didn't work because
some part of you
didn't want it to work.

you need love, but not mine.

you need to love, but not me.

And I know that it is truly over
because I find more relief in
these "goodbye" lines than pain.

fair well

merit.
