264

Sometimes I wonder if we’ll ever speak again or whether I have to die in order for you to miss me.

Your face, that smile, all that you were and all that I’ll never be. Everything we could have been and everything that’s forever out of reach. You put us here. You built the walls knowing I’d be too proud to tear them down. I can breathe again. The worst is over yet you’re not here to witness my redemption. What is it good for?

But she can still taste me on the tip of your tongue, your betrayal like the sweetest poison. She finds her heart broken every time your mind wanders in sin, love doesn’t offer you salvation. You will never find peace through denying yourself pleasure. You won’t learn to love her more by pretending.

I should just be happy for you.

I should just be happy for you.

I should just be happy for you.

I should just be happy for you.

Congratulations on your engagement.
