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.
