When you finally released “I love you” into my atmosphere, it was the most anticlimactic moment I’d ever had to experience. I waited so long for your mellifluous voice to say those words so that it could soothe my pining soul. But by then it was too late. I realized I deserved more than forced sentiments & pillow talk.
Although this never happened – you never actually said it
(you showed indifference when I walked away)
I like to imagine you did.
