Unrequited

How do you tell someone
you don't love them anymore?
Do you lie
And say that you are not enough
that they deserve better
When you know
she has outgrown you
like the favorite t-shirt
you no longer fit
but still
perhaps pathetically
you stretch it out
until its seams are frayed
and it constricts you
but you would rather wear familiarity
than be comfortable.

I like this. It's very real, very sad.

Love the comparison ... perfect. They say; change a thought, change your life. Good luck.
