You Need To Stop | a poem

Yes, we all experience getting over someone at different times, different paces, different everything.  But there comes a point where you'll just have to stop.
Stop wishing they'd call you.
Stop typing out texts to send them but saving them to your notes instead.
Stop listening to old voicemails.
Stop making excuses.
Stop trying to justify their actions.
Stop going back to the person that you know is wrong for you.
It's hard.  I know it's hard.  It's excruciatingly painful sometimes.
But there are 7 billion people in this world.
There are guys just like him, there are girls just like her.
But better.
Try imagining that for a second.  Pretty crazy, huh?  Because at one point of your life, you thought they were as good as it gets.
Well, they proved you wrong.
And now you're hurt.
You'll find someone else.
But first, you need to stop holding on to something that's not there anymore.  You need to stop wishing that things could go back to the way they were when you were first in love, because that's just like trying to grasp the air.  It's impossible.  It was a breeze that passed through your life, ruffled your hair and left it looking different, yes, but it didn't stick around to fix your wavy locks the way they were before.


  1. I really needed to read this! Why are we so apt to lose focus of the bad things they've done and only remember the good times? It's such a fault, and I wish it were easier to overcome.
