Enlightenment

Wanted so badly to be good enough

every part of me reformed, just for you

expectations, I couldn’t measure up

I lived and breathed like you asked me to do.

How swiftly I transfigured all my goals,

my passion losing all velocity

my love for you spinning out of control

until all I had left was apathy.

I can’t blame you for the painful heartbreak

the way I love has always been too much

no longer consider you a mistake

another lesson on how not to love.

Enlightenment brought by painful goodbyes,

a new-found understanding brought to light.
