All we are is all we know


I realize now that it's time to let go. I did my best. I changed. I fought. I did all of this stuff for you. It hurts thinking that you're gone. It hurts me how you moved on so fast when I'm still in pain. I see the way you talk now and how much you've changed. God, it really hurts. I can't help wondering if I fell in love with a stranger, because I don't think you're still the guy I fell in love with. I just want the best for you. You are so amazing and I hope someone gives you what I couldn't. I have to let go of you. It crushes me, but I need to heal myself before February rolls around. Before it's too late. Thank you for being in my life and opening my eyes. You let me see beauty and you brought it to my attention that I had a problem. You motivated me to change and when I look back years from now when I make something of myself, I'll know that you're the reason for me. Maybe Texas will be possible in another lifetime. I love you. Goodbye A.D.B.

@Summer_R_Quinn I still kinda hold onto the idea of Texas, but I know I can no longer have that with him. Had I have not let him go, Texas would still be possible.

@Summer_R_Quinn The quote "To Texas" was a really deep thing between me and my ex. I loved him deeply and I told him often that I wanted to marry him. We both talked about places we wanted to travel together and Texas was a place that we had in common. He told me that he'd take me to Texas one day and we could be together, just him and I. When anything went wrong and we had very little to hang on to, we'd tell each other to keep Texas in mind. When we broke up it seemed like all of our plans went down the drain, we no longer had that to hold on to. I felt like I not only lost him, I lost a part of myself and my dreams.

I love how you wrote this with a kind of raw emotion in the words. Can I ask what, "Maybe Texas will be possible in another lifetime" means?
