There was a time not long ago when he was all that filled my thoughts.
He held my world in the palm of his hands and gripped it so tightly.
I saw no future in which he did not exist.
I thought of him often with feelings of disdain and regret.
A man who was once so prevalent in my life has moved on without me.
It used to hurt so much more than this.
The songs we once sang together drove a dagger through my heart and the prospect of life with out him was unnerving.
He could never see all the potential in me.
He played me like a fiddle until every string had snapped and I was nothing but a shell of an instrument that once played such beautiful music.
He left me broken, baffled and bruised.
Today, I danced in his memory and rejoiced in the lesson learned.
I thought of him without the old feelings of disdain and regret.
Instead, I find myself filled with forgiveness and absolution.
I treasure the joys that we shared and said goodbye to the discontent.
I am finally free, he’s fading…
