he's not what she wants

he treats her right

he can see the whole world in her eyes

he holds her hand, brushes her hair back with his fingertips

he's not what she wants

she smiles, tries to convince herself its real

she forces a coarse laugh when he tells a joke, if only he knew

she doesnt't want to rip the seams of his heart

she's exactly what he wants

the way he touches her, it's what any girl would dream of

but she doesn't notice

he's not what she wants

she's exactly what he wants.

they're both intimidated by the truth because it has the capacity to hurt,

so they lie.

One of my closest friends went through this with a guy and it reminded me of how people are scared of the truth. Truth hurts.
