So this is how it ends, this is how everything we have fought for and worked so hard for crashes and burns. And it’s our fault, not you and not me, but both of us. We became too comfortable with each other, got too cocky with the relationship, you tested my boundaries and I tested yours, pushing further and further each time, until one day one of us finally cracked.

You shouted and I screamed, I’d cry and you’d walk off ensuring the door slammed behind you to make a point, you'd leave me alone in the house and I’d sit on the floor sobbing for what feels like an eternity. Eventually you’d come back and we’d both apologise to each other and make up for the fallout. This was a constant cycle, a completely unconventional love full of flaws but full of love and laughter, but of course this couldn’t last, one of us was bound to over step that boundary and push too far, one of us had to mess up eventually, this always happens with relationships, so why would ours be any different?

The thing is I believed ours was different and that it would actually last, ‘until death do us part’, but no, you walked away from this and I ran, we went from being so loved up and so together to hating each other, not being able to stay in the same room for too long without blowing up.  I loved you, you hear me? I loved you… loved… love… same thing, sort of. But now there is nothing I can do to get you back, nothing I can do to be able to feel me in your arms again, I wanted to be with you for as long as I lived, for as long as we lived, I wanted to have a family with you and I was prepared to grow old with you.

‘You are my best friend, my world, my everything, I will love you till the end of time’ you told me the day we got ‘hitched’, the day we got so swept up in the moment that we drove to the nearest chapel and got married, no questions and no regrets, or at least I believed. After that we’d spoken about baby names and thought up of our dream home, our dream pets, everything. That night we’d drunk in celebration and laughed the whole night away… We were happy… or so we thought.

Till death do us part… the words still ring in my head, you tried to leave, and I stopped you, I stopped you from leaving me but now you are gone forever, I can’t get you back I know this, I know this because you’re here but not with me, you are in my arms, but not holding me back, we’ve been like this for hours, one heart broken and one not beating…

I didn’t mean to hurt you, I didn’t mean to make you leave forever, I’m sorry, I’m so so sorry, but it was your fault for saying you’d had enough and that you were leaving, for good this time, and it was my fault for pushing you to that decision, and now here you are, laying limp in my arms, both of us coloured in crimson, me softly crying and you saying nothing… I’m sorry… I’m so so sorry… I love you…

So this is how it ends, this is how everything we have fought so hard for and worked so hard for crashes and burns, your love killed me and I killed you…
