When you leave, take everything we had with you.

If you’re going to leave, I understand. I am a hard person to be with, and it’s okay if you’re done with me. I know that you promised me that you would always be here nine months ago when I was hysterically crying on the phone, but I also know that sometimes people get caught in the moment and say things they don't mean and that sometimes people fall in love when they shouldn't. I don’t think I will ever get over the heartbreak, but maybe I’ll get used to the pain.

Before you leave, don’t forget to take everything that we had with you. Take your ‘good morning babygirl’ messages and your 2 a.m. phone calls. Take back every picture where we were smiling so wide and our eyes were so bright that anyone would think we were meant to be forever. Take back every time we told each other how much we meant to one another with tears in our eyes because we were so overwhelmed by the feeling of being in love. Take back every date and adventure, and every happy moment we spent together. Rid my memory of the electricity between us when we first met and the shock that ran through my bones every time we touched. Take back every hug and kiss and every morning that we woke up next to each other and thought that it was what we wanted for the rest of our lives. Clear my mind of every conversation where we spoke so passionately about our future together as if it was the only thing we were certain about. 

Most of all, I’m begging you; please take away the nausea in the pit of my stomach and the incessant echoing of your voice in my head when you said “I don’t love you anymore.” Take back the consistent repetition of the moment when you asked me so coldly, “Do you think I could do something like this and still care about you? I don't care how you feel.”

Before I met you I was a free spirit but now I’m scared of everything. My entire world is crashing down now and I’m trying so hard to hold it together. You’re doing well without me and I don’t want to be the weak one.

So if you’re leaving please go quickly, but God, just know that I see you everywhere and I’m begging you to take it all with you because every flashback makes it so hard to breathe.
