Loving you from afar

I am loving you from afar because I have to

Because it’s necessary

For too long I have acquiesced

Let you talk and kept quiet

Let you chip away at my confidence because I was afraid to be fussy

I was so intent on not hurting or upsetting anyone

That the only person I was hurting and upsetting was myself

I had to dig in and ask myself why

Why did I spend so much time formulating replies and intentionally being there for you?

When you couldn’t accord me the same respect

Why did I put up with it?

There is no point in regretting or wishing about things I can’t changeAll I can say is I love me so much that I can only love you from afar.
