Letting go of someone you once loved
You expect it to hurt
But there's only an empty feeling
Like you wasted your time
On this poor little otter
I used to love her so much
I gave her my everything.
I stayed up at night to comfort her,
I would tell her stories, read her books
I kept a journal for her filled with
Entries about how much I loved her
When she broke up with me
My hair started falling out
I couldn't eat, sleep or drink
I only cried myself to sleep
Which gave me migraines
Which made me cry harder
Which made my migraines hurt worse
I devoted nearly three years
Of my precious life to her
I don't regret it, not for a moment
I was so deeply in love; so happy.
She broke my heart, in the hopes of
Making herself happier
I'm the happy one.
I'll take my last breath
And let my alias and Nikki the otter fade
Fade into dust
Because that's no longer who I am.
Call me Tanner.
