It was too painful
  when I decided to leave you behind,
I was still in love with you
  yet I wasn't ready to reveal my real personification;
Because the denomination and the society
  we’ve both dealt with were too judgmental;
And I was not very sure
  if you were worth the trouble.

I did move on despite the emptiness within,
It was actually hard to get on
  when you still occupy my mind;
Yes, others came by to heal my damaged heart,
But I couldn’t love them
  the way I did love you before.

It’s been 14 long years
  and we finally got in touch again,
It’s weird, you know, so strange
  that I felt no more spark at all;
For more than a decade I thought I was lying to myself,
But I do found out that after all those years,
  I’m not in love with you anymore.

    (For MUT, my live-in partner from 1986-1989)
