Poem on post-breakup and self-growth.

Recently, after almost two years of growing and loving my partner, things had to be called off. I'm thankful it was mutual, but it still doesn't mean that I don't have a fresh wound in my heart knowing that it won't ever be the same without him. I wish things could be different, and I wasn't sitting here writing a silly poem about all the things I feel right now while I cry over Ben and Jerry's ice cream, but it must be done. To all my single ladies, this one is for you.

To think that it was going to be forever it was hurts the most.

Knowing that what we have is no more, and probably never will.

There is no one to blame, no anger towards you, nothing-

Just a new constant wonder of what life is going to be like now.

Spending time with you changed everything-

You helped me grow into the person I am today, and for the better.

But what I can't help being sad about, is that you aren't around to

Watch me continue to grow, and the same for you.

Thankfully we are still friends, but I can't help but think that even

That might not last forever - what if something else changes?

I suppose now it is time to just move on, think in the future.

While it is hard right now to see the good in everything,

I have to still keep moving along to make sure that I do

Not fall down the rabbit hole of post-breakup sadness.

The most important person in your life is yourself,

Don't rely on other's for your own happiness-

Love yourself and learn to be on your own.

Who knows, maybe you can even become who you

Want to be while being on your own?

No matter what happens though, breakups suck.

It is a lot of crying, ice cream eating, and sleep.

But it does not have to be that way forever.

To all my single ladies out there, the ones who are new to

All of this or have been in this life for a while, let's finish

Our 2019 strong, like the boss power women we are!
