i want you but i shouldn’t.
i want to see you so bad but i can’t allow myself to it.
i want you to let me in but i can’t let you in.
i miss you more than i feared.
enough broken pieces, enough damage, enough ‘what if’. i can’t afford to hurt you anymore. you deserve better than this.
leave, for the better. leave, and return you must never.
