I have waited. And waited some more. All this time spent willing you to recognise the truth, sending you signs to open your eyes to what’s right in front of you. But you won’t listen, won’t see, won’t act. My fingers have grown numb from holding fast for so long; my heart is weary of the pain and the strain I live every day. Every single day.
This cannot continue. All the love I have to give is going to waste and it’s not fair. It’s not fair. You seem happy without me, seem content and uninterested in my welfare. I guess I’m the only one expecting more from us. What happened? We used to be so close, so connected, so in sync. Now we’re just . . . ships passing by in the night. Our time is over, isn’t it? It’s OK, you can tell me. I’ll understand. I won’t hound you or cling for dear life; I’ll simply nod and leave you in peace.
But I must know the truth. I must be free of these chains and shed this burden, now and forever. I am not asking you to feel what’s not real; I am only asking you to show me what you do feel. We’ve known each other too long for you to fob me off with empty words and feeble excuses.
Be bold; speak your truth, take a stand, banish the uncertainty.
I already have. When will you?
