Two AM

Moving on from someone you love

is a constant uphill battle.

It physically and mentally drains you.

You have to constantly fight back

all of the memories and feelings.


And that’s why at 2 o’clock in the morning,

when you’re all alone, you become weak.

You’re so tired of fighting it.

and then the memories,

they all come right back.


The longing returns,

and that’s the worst of them all.

Suddenly all you want to do

is pick up the phone,

and all you want is to be in their arms.


But you don’t do it.


Because in the morning

you’ll have to go back to being strong again.

And you’ll have to go back to fighting it.

A phone call wouldn’t change anything anyways.


But I think it’s time I let you go.

It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done.

I think part of me wants to be in love

with you for the rest of my life.


The daydreaming,

the running in place.

It\'s not healthy.


So this is me, cutting the cord.

This is me doing what

I should have done months ago:

saying goodbye.
