Once upon a time a girl loved a boy.. but it’s never that simple is it? For being the kind of girl that pushes people away the more they care she’s surprised she kept it up as long as she did. But surely her wall began to crack and all her flaws began to seep through. She was too messed up and he just cared too much. So she made herself move one. She made him move on.
Now lies, those are simple. Lies like “I don’t love you, I never did.” It hurt her more to say than for him to hear.
And she died a little on the inside.
Him and her have been through a lot since then. They’re friends and they talk on a regular basis but there’s something fractured there. Something that keeps even their friendship broken. She pretends she doesn’t still love him. Like she didn’t make the biggest mistake when she made that little white lie. And he shuts out what he doesn’t want to feel. None of what they have now is real.
He has someone else now.
