I fell in love with your scars. I wanted to be the one to fix you.
You said you didn’t believe in love or promises, and so I promised I loved you and always would.
Almost every night before going to bed I text you “I love you”, and you just text me back “Sweet dreams”.
But when I avoid you, you come find me. I think you like hear me say “I love you”. And so I keep on saying it.
But you never say it back.
So don’t expect anymore “I love you” texts.
It’s not that I don’t care about you anymore, because I do. I promised I always would.
I’m just tired of trying to earn those three words.
