I used to wait for you. Days would go by before I got a text or a hello, but I was so elated to finally hear from you that I ignored all the signs. I forgot that I deserve better. I forgot that I actually need someone who’s going to uplift and adore me, worship me, love me completely, just as I loved you. But I’ll never get that from you. I’ll never get the sweet note or that hug or the awkward hand holding. I’ll never be able to hold you again, to kiss you and run my fingers along your collar bone; you’re simply too cruel. I can’t deal with the insensitivity and the cutting jokes. I can’t deal with the degrading behavior you’re so trapped in.
