The misunderstanding between us is that I left because you hurt me.
Truth is, I left because you deserved someone better than me
and to see you keep on loving despite all my imperfections,
to see you admiring my face with running mascara,
to see you holding my callused hands,
to see you gazing into my swollen eyes;
that’s what hurt the most.
