Heartbreaker

“I love you.”

A pause.

“I love you two.”

A lie.

“I thought for a second you weren’t going to say it.”

A moment of insight.

“Then I realized that’s ok. I know you love me without the words.”

I grip his shoulders a little bit tighter. I really didn’t want to be a heartbreaker.

“You comfortable?”

A nod.

“Yeah, I’m good.”

A mask.

“Good.”

A misunderstanding.

“Not many girls are willing to sit here and watch their boyfriends
play videogames.”

I’m just too deep in thought to want to do anything else. I don’t want to hurt you, I’m afraid you will leave. But I’m running out of options.

“I’m pretty tired.”

An excuse.

“I got that. I thought we’d do something low key.”

A consideration.

“Thanks.”

A pang in my heart.

“No problem.”

I wish I could tell you. But telling you will only cause you more pain. I just hope one day you will forgive me. I'll find my perfect person, so I hope you find yours.
