I no longer want to feel this emptiness that I have.
I've been thinking about this for a long time.
I've loved you for way too long.
I've had too many sleepless nights.
Because, I've been waiting for you to appear for half of my life.
I already have too many stories in my head.
I've spent too many hours invested in this stubbornness.
Now, please get out of my mind.
Now, please walk away from these dreams.
Now, please jump out of my memories because I want to be able to breathe.
Please, save your forgiveness.
Please, cut the connection.
And please, hurt me, so that I can go to never look back.
Don't show me that you love me when you don’t really feel it.
Don't show me that you cry for me when you cannot say that to my ear.
Don't say that you care for me if when I am not around, you are sleeping with half the town.
Do not tell me in the ear that you will be missing me.
Do not tell me in the ear that it will hurt to see me disappear
while you are holding a glass of beer.
Don't tell me please what I don't want to hear.
The days will go by and I will still hope to have you by my side.
The years will go by, and I will not show my love for you, even when the moon rises up and I remember us.
Our lives will go by, and I will still want to grab you by the hand to walk together and never look back.
Because I miss you so much that it hurts my heart, I need to let this love go.
Because I do not want it anymore.
