i am learning that you are no longer the earth and sky of my existence.
i am learning from the mistakes i made by loving you.
i am learning that the hurt was necessary.
i am also learning that it gets easier without you. i get better without you. i am also learning that unfortunately, i still love you, but i know i don't have to. i don't have to wait for you, and hurt my eyes wishing on stars for you, and deprive myself sleep thinking about you. i don't need to ride it out for you.
i am learning that you were a lesson worth learning.
so i'm taking myself back.
