I am better off without you

Despite the maddening velocity of my love for you

Despite all the times I swore you were the one that held me together

Despite not knowing back then I’d leave on a very average day & feel

no guilt, no remorse, no sadness

at all

Despite wanting to have had you in my life forever once upon a time

Despite your empty assurances that lied in the face of your love for me

I’m better off without you
