To the Man I Love

I meant every word I ever said.

I meant it when I told you that I will love you forever, unconditionally..

Even though you didn't. Because that's what unconditional means. I meant every word I ever said.


I meant it when I told you that I wish I didn't love you.. 

Because life would be so much easier. But it wasn't a choice for me to make. I meant every word I ever said.


I meant it when I told you I hated you..

After everything you did to me. But that didn't stop me loving you. I meant every word I ever said.


I meant it when I told you I didn't want to be with you..

I was happier without you. That didn't mean that I didn't wish we could be happy together again. I meant every word I ever said.


I meant it when I told you to go and be happy with the girl you left me for..

Because I just wanted you to be happy. Even if it meant my heart being ripped to shreds. I meant every word I ever said.


I meant it when I told you that I wouldn't contact you again..

Even though there is so much more I want to say. Because it would just cause more pain for both of us. I meant every word I ever said.


I mean it when I say, I will love you forever..

Even though you don't.

Even though I wish I didn't. 

Even though I hate you for what you did.

Even though you're happy without me.

Even though we haven't spoken for years. 


Because I meant every word I ever said.
