Why didn’t I learn to treat everything like it was the last time. My greatest regret was how much I believed in the future.

Here I am again, with so much to say. How could you just walk out on me on my birthday? All I wanted was one more day with you. I suppose that was too much for you. Now I’m seeing things more clearly. All the words you spoke and never followed through on. I need to focus on my happiness and no one else right now. It becomes more and less real every hour. More because I can now see who you really are selfish and cold. Less because I don’t want to believe it. I don’t know what I was expecting - forever? I know that’s asking a lot of a 21 year old but I really believed it at one time. I’m not saying you didn’t love me but I am saying it wasn’t enough. I’m hurting but at the same time it’s different. I feel hopeful because you really were wonderful for a time and I’m thankful for that and sad that it’s over. I don’t want to remember the good right now. I want to write you, someday maybe I will, but not right now. As much as my heart wants to reach out my head knows that it’s not smart. For now it hurts, but I will look towards the light.
