The Moment I Threw Your Toothbrush Away

    when did you accept that it was really over?

    The Moment I Threw Your Toothbrush Away
    Confession: I’ve accidentally used your toothbrush a few times
    I can never remember what color I am!
    Except at your place, where obviously, I’m the pink one
    “I didn’t get it cause you’re a girl,” You said
    But now, I know exactly which is yours
    I pick up the green one next to my blue
    Clutch it in my hands like a bible over an open fire
    Knowing if I let go, I’m admitting There is no God.
    That turning our backs on this temple does nothing.
    No more of your silly Egyptian dance by the sink
    Hips knocking together, bones locking in tune
    Open mouths laughing, minty kisses collecting the sound
    Everything we held sacred turns to sin.
    Wrapping your long arms around me from behind
    Wiggling your eyebrows at our naked form in the mirror
    Singing hymns into my hair.
    The quirks that make up our church.
    I close my eyes and try to feel you out there
    Across the concrete river between us
    in your basement sanctuary, maybe
    you’re holding my pink toothbrush in your hand too
    wondering what to do
    I don’t feel you.
    I used to feel you out there. Always.
    Even when you were half a world away.
    But believing in us is blasphemy
    if you don’t believe
    in me
    With a silent prayer,
    I let the toothbrush fall from my fingers
    into the trash.

I get this. When my boyfriend broke up, I didn't change the bedding for way longer than I can admit. It didn't even smell like him anymore, but I still couldn't.

I left an extremely toxic relationship where he kept playing with my feelings, cheated on me, humiliated me and would literally go cold on me recently. This honestly hit home, almost three years of my life we spent in this daze and now I’m wide awake

If a relationship doesn't work out, it wasn't meant to be. A great experience, a learning experience, but not "The One". And that's OK. We will meet many people in our lives, and become close to some of them, maybe, but not every two people need to be good together. I used to think it was a shame when someone I liked didn't like me back, but then I came to understand: that potential relationship isn't meant to happen. If it were meant to happen, that person would feel crazy about me. It's not about what you "deserve", it's not about long lists of traits that you find desirable in another person. Some people just go well together. Consider that if you're with someone and you DON'T feel that way about each other, then maybe somewhere there's the person you're supposed to be with and you're keeping yourself from that wonderful future. And certainly, don't waste time thinking that maybe if you had done something differently then perhaps that relationship would have worked out. Because in the end, you are who you are, you are (hopefully) working to become better tomorrow than you are today. If that person can't see that in you, then it's for the best that your roads lead to different places.

I could really relate to this and it hit hard, it's hard completely letting go of something that once made you so happy but you know it's the right thing to do once it hurt so much.
