Another piece I wrote. A reflection of how I felt after realizing I wasn't with the right person for me.

The Ruler

I understand not why I thought this time I could control You, when in fact You have always been in control.

Somehow You always know where You want to go, where You want to be and what You want to do.

And yet there I was...

I should have known that my attempts to control and perform a job only You were born to accede; was doomed for failure. It was You who realized happiness is ever lasting when I acknowledge your signs and feelings.

After all, it has been said that You know best.

It was you who never failed in judgment of your fellow men. Those who pretended to care only to capture and damage. And when in a million pieces I found you with no foundation or direction; I realized that I am nothing without You.

Slowly but surely I made you understand that You are the ruler and although I want what is best for You; You are the guide, the protector and reason for life.

On this day I resign and give You absolute control for You are whole once again. I am the Mind and You are the Heart.

It seems this was conversation with yourself, nice technique, beautifully written.
