Withdraw with the Truth

I poured out my heart

lowering my facade

allowing my emotions to flow,

her reponse

was terse,

I asked her if she loved me less

she said

I do

In that moment I knew

it was time

to take a step back

to appreciate her honesty

rather than attempt to change her emotions,

channeling my energy inwards

to what I had power over,

protecting my heart

accepting reality

and recognizing

sometimes it is better

to withdraw with the truth

than be wounded by a wish
