I Can't Love You Anymore

She stood there in front of him, holding his hand, legs shaking as her eyes drifted from him to the wall behind them. “This place, this wretched space. We don’t belong here anymore!” She shouted. “Oh, but we do,” he replied. “And you’re going to sit down and listen to what I have to say so that maybe, just maybe you’ll understand.” She studied his face one moment more before sitting in the chair across from him. She heard the sound of his voice echoing against the bare walls, she was sure there were words forming, but the sound of her heart racing..thud thump, thud thump, was distracting her. “No, no, no no. I can’t. I can’t sit here and listen to this. I just can’t do this anymore,” she said as she wiped back the tears. She rose from her chair and headed for the door. As she turned the knob, her final words were crystal clear, “Please let me go. I….. I can’t love you anymore.” And with that she walked through that door one last time. ~ Erin Rose
