Stay

By
I wanted us to end like this.
No, i never said i wanted us to end,
but ending like this is best.
A mutual decision, kind of.
We both know we have to move on.
Our love hasn't stopped, it's only grown.
But all good things must come to an end.

Believe me, i saw this coming.


I've already fought the bitterness.
Had my regrets.
Lost hours of sleep
Then one morning i woke up happy.
I accepted it.
Those were our best days.
No fear, no stress.
Just you and me, both knowing the end was near.
Making promises we knew we wouldn't keep.
But it was sweet anyway.
It was comforting anyway.
Sometimes i almost believed we would work.
But then i'd crush my own hopes.
Better to hurt now then later.
Neither of us wanted to say it.
To end it.
There was plenty of


Opportunity.
Not enough bravery.
One day you got down my suitcase.
Because you knew i couldn't reach it.
I laughed, you stifled tears,
but you gifted me with a smile.
And i gave you a kiss.
It still hurt, but not as bad.
Then i put 5 years of memories in my bag.
You watched, sadness building in your eyes.
It was all I could do not to cry.
Suddenly, my hand was in yours and

You would not let go.
"Please don't tell me this is goodbye forever."
You begged, i broke.
We cried it out like we always did.
And i couldn't look you him the eye.
"I don't want it to be."
I answered, he embraced me.

That was all he needed.
All i needed, for my final decision.
I threw my back back in the closet.


Tossed my keys away.
Looked at him and said.
"I don't know about you, but im gonna stay."
