I cannot begin to count, even now
How many times we restarted- us
Or how many times I eagerly forgave
Ignoring the fresh wounds and scars
You wanted more than was possible
But nothing would really be enough
Nor did you comprehend, my love
I was too blind to really realize reality
You and our love, could not be saved
I treaded water in the wrong direction
Trying to save what was unreachable
I fell in love with uncontrollable chaos
It felt like home inside my broken soul
It hurt me the utmost … letting you go
