If only loving you hadn't been so
suffocating,
I wouldn't have had to cut you from me,
my lungs,
my heart,
my mind,
to save what I had left of myself.
If only loving myself hadn't been so
painful,
I wouldn't have had to torture my body,
through pain,
and loneliness,
and with less,
to fit what I thought I should be.
If only I had learned sooner,
but I'm better now.
