I wish you had never entered my life the way you did when you were back for such a short period of time. I fell for you and you let me fall for you. Now you won’t even speak to me, how childish. Why? I have no clue. I’m not a mind reader but all you’ve done is shown me what kind of person you really are. I hate how many tears and all the hope I wasted on you. I’m going to continue on with my life, but know that you royally destroyed your chances in any way, shape or form with me. It could have been a nice ride.
