You said you were different. You said that when you dated a girl, it was because you saw a future with her. But suddenly, you don’t see a future with me anymore. Instead, you talk about how you need to focus on your future, as if I’m holding you back from it.
You said you were different. You said that nice guys never get the pretty girl. Turns out you weren’t so nice after all. Nice guys don’t leave a girl wondering what she could have possibly done wrong. Nice guys don’t leave girls without answers.
You said you were different. You said you needed space, so I said, “Don’t forget about me.” You said, “I could never forget about you” but as I’m scrolling through our messages, or logging onto Facebook, it seems like you’ve forgotten about me already. There isn’t even a trace of our adventures or the times we’d shared.
You said you were different. You said “I love you.” Our friends thought we were crazy. Maybe we were. They said we hadn’t been together long enough to know what love was, but we were sure. We said it every morning and every night before bed, whether we were together or not. Until we didn’t. Until suddenly, it was just me. “I love you” turned into “Delivered” and “Seen at 6:12PM”.
You said you were different. When you heard about how the last few boys treated me, you were angry. You said that we would never get to a point where I was crying into my dad’s shoulders on the porch because you broke my heart. But here we are.
You said you were different. You weren’t.
