You deserve better, and I'm glad you've finally found it..

I'm not sure how you did it...whether it's from your new job, or a new personal relationship, 

But I'm glad you've found better. 

You weren't broken when I met you; you were sure of yourself, confident. 

You moved with ease and you could get the world's attention just by smiling. 

I wanted your energy all to myself, but...

I didn't mean to take your light from you. I didn't mean to break you. 

My selfishness broke you, and drove you I'm glad you've found better. 

I'm glad you're gettting your confidence back and I'm happy to see you walk with your head higher. 

You deserve everything good that comes your way, and I'm sorry I can't be apart of that. 

I regret wasting my chances....all the chances you gave me to adjust, and to reciprocate the love and respect you showed me. 

I regret not fighting for you and with you.

I regret being your worst nightmare, just to keep you close to me. 

I regret being a nightmare at all, for if I were a dream, maybe you'd still be here...

But you deserve better, and I'm glad you've finally found it, 

I'm sorry I couldn't be better for you.

What a touching little snippet! I'm glad that the MC here somehow realized their flaws and decided to let go, instead of possibly causing even more hurt. This is what real love is supposed to be, I think. Thanks for sharing this raw and simply beautiful story.
