this is me

This poem is about my breakup with my girlfriend of four years. I broke up with her on Monday. I feel terrible but I know it's for the best. I let it go on much to long. I should have ended it much sooner.

this is me

this is me
finally standing up for myself
this is me
finally walking away
this is me
finally saying enough
this is me
finally growing a pair
this is me
finally finding some self-worth
some self-esteem
this is me
realizing there is a big difference
between what I want
and what I need
I want you
but I do not need you
I need to love myself
I need someone
who will make me a priority in their life
I need someone
who will treat me with respect
I need someone
who will take my feelings into consideration
and not do whatever the hell they want
and not caring if it will hurt me or not
this is me
letting go
don't get me wrong
there is a big part of me
that does not want to
there is a part of me
that is struggling
there is a part of me
that is hurt
but also angry at the same time
I've invested so much time
and sweat
and tears
and blood into this
this is me
saying you are not good for me
it's been all about you
for so long
that I do not even know
who I am anymore
it's been about me shoveling
all my love
and time
and devotion
into a bottomless pit
and I cannot do it anymore
