To the “Perfect” Boyfriend,
You were there when I needed you. Always had been my strength and support despite the many naysayers I had.
You were there to wipe my tears away and hold me tight when my world felt like it was exploding.
You were the first person I’d run to, happy, sad or angry. You tried your best to make everything better.
As time passed, the spark faded into the abyss. I was ignored, only to be replaced by new things that you became so engrossed with.
I tried, oh hell, I tried to shake it off, to look past this downfall. I tried my best to tell you how I felt. You said to give you another chance, and then another, and another. It worked for a while. The more I tried, the more I realised I was drifting apart.
How did it come to a point where I couldn’t open up my feelings, as to feel more excluded and ridiculed?
You felt like home before, but now, I just can’t stand being around you.
Perfection never lasts. Everyone has their shortcomings, me included.
It hurts to say goodbye, but my heart can’t take another repeated cycle.
I wish you love and peace in your life.
