I'm having a hard time getting out of bed these days

It's not that I'm sad

I just really like my bed

Also, I'm sad

I'm sad because the boy who held my future in the palm of his hands left me

He still loves me; he just needs time

I am sad because "I still love you" hurts more than "I found someone else"

I still love you implies a slew of cliches

Such as: it's nothing you did, I just need to find myself, and this is just a break

But all I hear is: there's nothing you can fix, you just weren't enough for me, and I'm trying to see if I can find something better

It's as if to say, "I love you. I just thought finding the love of my life would feel different."

At least "I don't love you anymore" provides an explanation

But I'm stuck in a world of questions

Wondering how I can change myself so entirely, that no one can ever love me and still feel the need to leave me
