I love you so deeply From the bottom of my heart. This relationship has grown like a flower vibrant, whole, happy and safe. But what good is a flower that grows in someone else's garden? I have your heart and your attention. She has your last name and is legally bound. You say you don't love her anymore, that I am who you want to spend the rest of your life with. Where is my promise? Where is my forever? You don't know how bad it hurts that you won't let her go. She's asked you to release her, I've asked you to be fully mine. And yet you wait and you hold on... For what? Am I truly not good enough? Am I convenient while you bide your time? Do you truly feel the way I do? There is sadness in my eyes. My heart breaking a little every day. I've given you so much of me and I wonder what good it's done. My soul is defeated, my spirit is broken and our beautiful flower is withering. You can never be mine while you still hold so tight to the garden you tended with her. A flower unloved is better off dead.
