Bad habit

It’s almost been a month since we called it quits. Most people say that’s how long it takes to get over an addiction.
But when will the pain go away?

I now realize we had grown dependent on each other, in a way like a bad habit. We demanded each other’s attention, but could never fully satisfy our individual yearnings or needs.
But when will the cravings stay away?

As I continue to walk away from you à la cold turkey, I know this is for the best. I’m opening myself up to new possibilities, opportunities, and life experiences.
But when will our memories fade away.
