I saw you for the very first time.
I knew I was in love.
You said I was beautiful. You secretly held my hand in class.
You said you loved me too. You made me smile for the first time that year.
You made me happy, made me feel good about myself.
You seemed distant. Maybe I was getting paranoid. You re-assured me that you loved me.
You started spending more time with her. You thought I wouldn’t find out.
I let you go, it was for the best. You seemed relieved and didn’t shed a tear.
I couldn’t stop thinking about you. I had never stopped loving you. But I never said a word.
She broke your heart with another man. You got what you deserved.
You told me you still loved me. I cried as I walked away silently.
Neither of us ever smiled again.
