I had set my mind to become the bridge between the two of you that very day you told me how much she meant to you
I still remember the affection in your eyes when you locked your eyes with hers
I still remember the smile on your face every time you spoke to me about her
I knew that those eyes of yours would never reflect the love you have for her on me
I knew that I would never be the reason for that wide smile across your cheeks
Love is not about possession
Love is unconditional
In the name of love, I decided to let you go
In the name of love, I mustered the courage to unite you with the one your heart beats for
Perhaps, I knew what it felt like to watch your love silently from afar
And perhaps I knew what it felt like to be a one-sided lover
After all, I have walked through that lane far too many times
From that day, you became the beneficiary of my benevolence
Every time I saw you with her, I died a little inside
Yet, I never let you know how I was shattering a little from time to time
I can’t deny that I still want you
Nor can I deny that she belongs with you
How was it my fault that I fell in love with you?
How was it my fault that I found solace from a glimpse of you?
All I wanted was to immerse myself in the arms of someone I could call home
But I never knew that it would end up breaking me just so much.
