The Sad Girl with the Long Hair

I did it. I cut it all off. I finally realized I kept it all these years for you, when all I really wanted was to shed the extra weight. The extra weight that began to burden my entire being. Cutting it off freed me. It freed me from my dark thoughts, but most importantly it freed me from you. It was the unspoken thread that held us together & now that it’s gone what is there to tie the broken pieces of us back together with? It defined me, but the me that was “me” when I was with you. And now? Now it defines me and only me.

Who knows……perhaps one day, when it’s long again….I will run my fingers through it & not a single memory of you will cross my mind.
