My Sun

Heartstring Eulogies

“Make no mistake, my world did not exist
to bow at your feet. You were light,
but you were never my sun.”

I feel the emptiness today, worse than most days. And I’m not sure if I can bear to fill it back up when I know it’ll be stripped away again. Yet this is my reality. Wash, rinse, repeat. I keep going, not because I should, but because I must. You see, you were never meant to stay, let alone love me. I have other people — real people I can depend on. Make no mistake, my world did not exist to bow at your feet. You were light, but you were never my sun. So take it elsewhere, because you can’t have the satisfaction of knowing you broke me. You weren’t worth that much.

I was meant to shine
on my own.
