If you’re dumb and desperate enough to continue falling for the lies and the distrust, than you deserve the pain you are signing yourself up for for the rest of your life.

I know. I’ve heard this from everyone.

It’s not that I don’t love you. It’s the sound I heard when I was 9 and my father slammed the front door so hard behind him I swear to god it shook the whole house. For the next 3 years I watched my mother break her teeth on vodka bottles. I think she stopped breathing when he left. I think part of her died. I think he took her heart with him when he walked out. Her chest is empty, just a shattered mess or cracked ribs and depression pills.

It’s not that I don’t love you. It’s all the blood in the sink. It’s the night that I spent 12 hours in the emergency room waiting to see if my sister was going to be okay, after the boy she loved, told her he didn’t love her anymore. It’s the crying, and the fluorescent lights, and white sneakers and pale faces and shaky breaths and blood. So much blood.

It’s not that I don’t love you. It’s the time that I had to stay up for two days straight with my best friend while she cried and shrieked and threw up on my bedroom floor because her boyfriend fucked his ex. I swear to god she still has tear streaks stained onto her cheeks. I think when you love someone, it never really goes away.

It’s not that I don’t love you. It’s the six weeks we had a substitute in English because our teacher was getting divorced and couldn’t handle getting out of bed. When she came back she was smiling. But her hands shook so hard when she held her coffee, you could see that something was broken inside. And sometimes when things break, you can’t fix them. Nothing ever goes back to how it was. I got an A in English that year. I think her head was always spinning too hard to read any essays.

It’s not that I don’t love you. It’s that I do.

Lots of things can be fixed. Things can be fixed. But many times, relationships between people cannot be fixed, because they should not be fixed. You’re aboard a ship setting sail, and the other person has joined the inland circus, or is boarding a different ship, and you just can’t be with each other anymore. Because you shouldn’t be.

The weekend was nice because you treated me the way I should have been treated a long time ago. It does not mean we’re ok now. That doesn’t put us back together. It just reminds me of all the times you lied to me and left me for her. A year ago I wasn’t ready for you to leave me. I cried so hard I couldn’t breathe and I thought dying might be nice. We found ourselves in a seriously fucked up cycle and you kept reassuring me it was love. You said that everyone has bad years. You reassured me that she knew that I was your love.

I don’t want bad years.

I don’t want someone to doubt me for a second.

I will not share.

I wasn’t ready for you to leave me then, but I’m ready to leave you now.
