When we ended,
it wasn’t peaceful.
I am still entirely broken
and you are perfectly fine.
You aren’t missing me and in fact,
you are happier than you ever were with me.
I am happy you are happy,
please understand that.
I just wish I could be the one inspiring that smile.
Years from now
if you remember me,
please remember the girl you fell in love with
the one whose smile you thought of as infectious
the one whose eyes never left you
the one who you never wanted to spend a minute without
the one who you believed to be so effortlessly beautiful, through and through
the one whose hand fit perfectly in yours
the one who believed you were everything
the one who you said was a work of art
the one whom you convinced love was real and fell into love with
the one who though was flawed, was still worth it
the one you loved.
Remember me as who I am
