I need you to understand

I need you to know how much I love you.

That even though you loved me it was never enough.

I couldn’t silence the sound of my heart breaking 

I couldn’t fill the emptiness inside.

I tried to live.

I tried to hold on.

For you,

For them.

For all the ones I loved. 

But the pain became to much

I couldn’t make it through 

I tried to fight 

I need you to believe that.

I need you to know this wasn’t your fault 

You couldn’t stop it.

I wish you could see that this wasn’t easy.

That this wasn’t what I wanted

I didn’t want to hurt anyone.

I wanted you to be enough.

I wanted love to save me.

But there was too much darkness 

I couldn’t find the light.

Know that I will always be with you

That my love for you was real.

I know your in pain,

I know this hurt you.

I wish I could have protected you from this,

I wish I could take your pain away.

I can’t tell you not to cry

I can’t tell you that it’s going to be okay,

I can’t tell you that it will be easy.

I left a hole in your heart.

I know it will take a while for this to heal.

I need you know 

That when my heart stopped beating 

I was finally at peace

The pain was no longer there.

I am finally free.
