If Only

If only this didn’t hurt,
maybe then I could say good-bye.
If only I didn’t love you,
maybe then I could let go.
Walking away
seems much easier
when it’s not your heart
that’s falling apart.
When you’re no longer invested.
When you don’t care.
Give me your indifference.
Give me your strength.
Take my love away.
Please,
take all the pieces of you
embedded in me.
Purge yourself from my spirit,
from my head,
and my heart.
If only I could forget,
maybe I could move on.
If only I hadn’t met you,
maybe I wouldn’t feel this turmoil.
If only I could let go,
maybe then this wouldn’t hurt.
If only I didn’t love you,
maybe then I could say good-bye.

Prompt: If Only
