There's too much.
Or maybe there's not enough. There's too much damage that has been done to me. There's not enough left that you kept in one piece. Too many pieces to try to fit together. Too many memories that haunt me.
Thanks to you.
Now I have to try to put myself back together. I have to forget about what has happened, like it was all nothing. But it wasn't nothing. It's something. Something that broke me, like a jockey breaks a horse.
I'd rather remember.
Pick up the pieces and replay them again and again. I'd show myself how weak I was. How spineless I've become. Then maybe next time I'll do something. I'll learn from my mistake.
The mistake of letting you hurt me.
Does my pain make you happy? Does my suffering cause you joy? I hope it does. Then at least my pain can be useful to someone. My misery isn't completely pointless. My life had now affected someone's life positively.
But now I've learned.
So maybe you did help me. I learned how worthless I am, how insignificant I am to this world. If my only purpose is for my grief to please others I am really nothing. And you helped me learn that.
I am broken.
But I deserve it. So no one try to help me put back the pieces. I want them to me a message that I'll always remember.
I am nothing.

“If I speak in the tongues of angels, but have not love, I'm only a resounding noise , If I have the gift of knowledge, And if my faith moves mountains high, But have not love I am nothing… Though I know the One, Who holds the stars in the heavens, In the palm of His hand, If I give all I possess , To the poor and the helpless, I'll still gain nothing, Without love… Love's patient, True love is always kind, Love does not envy, Never brags, it's never proud, Slow to wrath, it keeps no records of wrongs against friends, Love forgives… It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” (1 Corinthians 13:1-5,7)
“If the world hates you, remember that it hated Me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.” John 15:18-19
"The world is not respectable; it is mortal, tormented, confused, deluded forever; but it is shot through with beauty, with love, with glints of courage and laughter; and in these the spirit blooms..." ~ George Santayana

If you love something, srt it free. If they come back, it was meant to be. If they dont, they were never yours in the first place.
