But Now

January 21, 2010
I loved that when I use to look at you

You’d smiled, giggle and turn your head, flattered


But now

You don’t giggle

You don’t smile

But you still turn your head


I loved that when we held hands

You gently rubbed your thumb

On my fingers


But now

You twiddle your fingers

Anxiously waiting

For me leave the room


I love that when we kissed

We’d hold each other tight

Felling blessed

In love

But now

You wont even speak to me

How could you?

Love a person the way you did

Say you could be nothing without him

Take his heart

Neuter it

Then destroy it?

I hate that you treat me this way

I hate that I haven’t given up hope
But now

I hate that I’m still in love with you
