Sometimes love can’t last forever, and even though it might not end badly, the memories are still very raw and painful. You just wish everything would burn to the ground. Feel free to comment.

i remember the first time we met

sitting side by side in an awkward silence

we were both single and your friend thought she’s set us up

i wasn’t too keen at first, so i kept my distance

but the second your hand touched mine, a spark shot right up my arm and down mine spine

the fireworks between us were truely magnificent

i never thought i’d love again until you came along

i remember the first time we moved in together

our very own little flat, so cosy

the laughs we had while decorating, make me smile, even now

thinking of all the good times we shared

all our pictures lined up along the fireplace

photo’s of us both hung on almost every wall

i remember all the romantic notes you used to leave all over the house

hidden in the sugar jar, in the fridge and always on my pillow

you used to run me a bath and with the steam on the mirror you always wrote i love you

so sweet and adorable

but good things can’t last forever can they

because not long after, it all went downhill

out of nowhere, we just started to fight

cruel words being spoken everyday

i started to hate you, so i asked you to leave

it broke my heart, but i knew we obviously weren’t meant to be

even now I’m still devastated

everywhere i look there are memories of you, of us

most were good

but it’s so painful living in what was our cosy little love nest without you

i can’t stand it anymore

i pray all the time that it would just burn to the ground

but I’ll make the first step to erase you

I’ll gather up all your sweet little notes, all your gifts and every picture of you and i

every memory

and I’ll burn it all…

    Such a nice story I remember meeting my wife over 40 years ago it seems like yesterday can still remember what she was wearing and new the first time I looked in her eyes that this was the lady for me. Luckily she felt the same.
    Best Wishes

    It’s the best thing to do at the end of a relationship.
