One day she will turn to you and say “do you still love me?” and a million things will flash through your mind.
you loved her when you met her because it was the right time. but now things have gone lifeless and when you look in her eyes you don’t see the galaxy you see a star and stars are beautiful but they can’t sustain life and she can’t give you what you need anymore. you need to tell her, don’t keep waiting.
it wasn’t her fault and she’s still like sweet lemonade to you but your taste buds are changing and lemon isn’t your favorite any longer. maybe what you’re looking for is ice tea or coffee. you need to tell her that it’s you who changed, not her. do not let her think this is her fault. it will break her and she will turn sour.
you didn’t just wake up and decide not to love her anymore. it wasn’t because she didn’t smile at you when she was having a bad day it isn’t because she snapped at you last week it isn’t because she’s a burden because she isn’t. tell her how sometimes people lose things and it’s better to leave them lost, or things break and it’s better to leave them broken. make sure she knows this doesn’t have to break her.
one day she will ask you “do you still love me?” and you will want to lie and say yes, you will want to spare her. don’t lie it will only delay the inevitable. this love has broken and eventually she will find the cracks and if you do not warn her they will cut her. you need to warn her. you need to let her go.
