This time break my heart

This time break my heart,
Tell me you have issues,
That it’s not the right time,
That you don’t see how this could work.

This time break my heart,
I give you the right,
Not a speech from my depths,
About why you should stay,
About growth, mistakes and learning,
Or the intense desire I have for you.

This time break my heart,
So I can agree with you and walk away,
From a love that has tortured more than lightened my load,
Break my heart so I can walk away and never look back,
So I can see you the way all others do,
So I can say it’s okay that I tried and failed,
So you can finally watch me leave.
