- not mine -


I didn't like you because you were perfect.
Because you weren't.

You were shy and distracted and clumsy.

I didn't like you because you were brave.
Because I didn't know you were.

I didn't get the chance to see you fight for the things that you loved.

I didn't like you because you were capable.
Because, frankly, you weren't.

You were just a boy then.

But really?

I didn't like you.
I think I loved you.

And that's the thing.

I didn't even know how much I loved you
until you were gone.


xoxo

  1. Want to know something about me? This describes me so so much. I never knew how much I loved people until they were gone, and once the weight of their disappearance fell upon me, I cried for weeks. One of my friends moved away, and I've known them since the fifth grade. It's been nearly a year since I last saw him, but I cry. I don't know... I'm just emotional, I guess.

    xoxo Morning
