I Don't Hate You

Why don't you listen to me?
I don't hate you,
don't love you...
It's something different
between you and me.
I know you don't see it.
Why I stopped it all,
you and I 
are too different.
It's not our beliefs,
my God,
or your darkness,
that's not what 
ultimately made me leave.
It was how you treated me.
You were holding,
stringing,
pulling my heart along.
I was pushing,
pulling,
I know you saw it all.
I wanted to back away,
but you kept grabbing me.
Wether you knew it or not,
in a wrists snap
you threw me away
and I fell on my back.
I realized then
that we would need 
to stop this friendship.
I sacrificed my heart 
when we were in love,
but my heart is mine,
and I must keep it safe now.
Please listen to me,
I wish the best for you,
but it's my choice to make the first move,
until then please step back
and let me be.

    Betty, what a traumatic relationship you show in this wonderful poem. I feel your pain and see your wisdom at protecting yourself. You are wise.
