“Rumor has it he’s the one I’m leaving you for.” ~ Adele
There is a kind of peace knowing I treasured you.
I always will.
You hurt and disappointed. I forgive all involved.
I love you still.
You can celebrate and dance because if this has been a duel
Of beauty, pride, making an impression,
Having meaning in life,
You are winner without question.
My life was a phantom of being loveless without you.
I’ll put in my time — whatever I’m due.
My essence was an unfinished sentence . . . .
I no longer have to be completed by the likes of you.
