Day 241: Falling in Love

I need to stop falling in love with you,
with unspoken promises cast in glances
and smiles filled with longing.

I need to stop waiting for you to move,
convincing you that we belong,
just because I am sure how right we will be.

I need to stop making myself less,
to make you feel more,
so you will see what I see in you.

I need to stop being your excuse,
to stop opening your heart,
because you know the truth.

I will stop falling in love with you,
because your heart is closed
and you are less for it.

I will stop falling in love with you,
as no matter how much we belong,
unspoken promises are just silence.
