I’ve decided in my heart that I no longer want to know you.
If the pain of crossing over that thin line between love and hate feels like this,
then I voluntarily relinquish all memories and every moment we ever shared.
I am forced to put on this hard face of protection
as I inwardly lose color turning pale to blue
as the last bit of oxygen leaves my body.
You were my air.
I made you so pervasive, that you were all I could breathe.
But I thank God for the trees surrounding me.
The ones that have always been there
giving off their energies
standing tall for me just waiting for the day
that I would take the time to give back
and water the forest of love
I’ve always had.
