Day 199: A Note to My Past Relationships

To the relationships
I have ruined,
It wasn’t you but me.

I, who was too afraid to
trust the genuineness of your gaze
And instead looked at it
As the mirror of my insecurities.

It was I who turned away and
Ripped the strings that were
Forming between us

To the relationships that ruined me
I am sorry that I let it become
About you.

Letting you be my only security
and placing you in the centre
of my orbit.

I should have remembered,
that there is no sun brighter
than mine in my universe.
