    You were finished, so I retreated. You’re not hurt. Please don’t tell yourself you are.

    Now you’re where my heart was. No, you didn’t steal it. I told you it was at the bottom of the ocean. I lifted it out and handed it to you. Why? Because I wanted to see if I was wrong. I was. You should derive a certain satisfaction in reading those words.

    I will never admit to your face what you’ve done to me…

    I’ve blinked. I’m not like you. I know and understand that winning that game is to not outstare your opponent, but to show that the statue has come to life.

      This is really beautiful. Your metaphors and their meaning lingered in my mind after reading it so wanted to just say. x

      I agree, but who are you to tell someone how they feel inside? Most people think I am a happy bubbly person. They wouldn’t guess the inner turmoil I hide. Especially if my ego takes a blow. I will do my best to prove that I am unscathed. The louder my laughs and the wider the smile, the more you can be certain that I am bothered or feeling defeated or useless or hurt or etc etc.

      I apologize. I don’t mean this as an attack. Nothing personal either. I was just using it as an opportunity to explore my own personality, because I would find it offensive if someone presumed to know my feelings better than I do.

        The point is, “don’t make yourself the victim.” Otherwise, you’re correct.
