It’s like second nature to me now – the lies, the deception. I can do it without batting an eye.
She asks me to swear I’ll never hurt her again. I say, “I promise.”
She tells me it’s not okay for me to put others’ well-being over hers. I tell her “I know. I won’t.”
She constantly asks me to stop and really listen to her and I tell her I’m always listening.
One of these days, I know she’ll get fed up and leave me forever.
She’ll pretend it’s all okay for a few days. But she’s never been too good at pretending, not like I am. When she finally cracks, she won’t have the heart to tell me. She’ll slowly inch out of my world, trying to make the transition easier for me. But she’ll be gone nonetheless, the broken girl in the mirror.
And when she is, I’ll know I’m screwed forever.
