he left me

The room was dark and “planet earth” was playing on the tv next to them. He was leaving at 9, but it was 9:10. The two lay on the couch, holding each other close, his arms wrapped around her back, fingers moving over his lips and his face. He kissed her cheeks over and over. He kissed her lips and they giggled together as she ruffled his hair.


You make me so happy. I love you with my whole heart, baby. I know I will love you forever. I’m the happiest on earth right now. 


I love you too. With my whole heart. 


she brought her lips to his, but he let go. He let go of her and pushed her away. Hard. He pushed her hard off of him. 




Don’t touch me right now. I remembered that guy. 


she was stunned. 


What? baby why? Why do you do this?


She put her hand on his, and he swiftly moved it away. Again, she grasped his hand, this time with more strength. She didn’t want to let go. He took her hand off his, with force. despite her effort, she wasn’t strong enough to hold onto him.


I’m really sad right now. I don’t want to cuddle or kiss you right now.


What? Baby why are you reminding yourself of that?


Don’t call me baby right now. I need to leave, its 9:10.


His friend entered the room. 


Hey buddy, everyone's coming over so I think we should go


Give us a second, okay?


He left, unaware of what was happening

baby, come back.

Why? Weren’t you just happy with me? Cuddling me? Telling me how much you loved me? Don’t leave me like that! 


Tears swelled to her eyes. He could see it, even in the dark room. 


Are you crying?




She said as tears streamed down her face. mascara dripped, leaving black streaks on her cheeks. He came closer to her, and enveloped her in his arms. He brought his hands up to her cheeks, holding her face to look at his. Gently wiping her tears with his hands, he said,


I love you. You know I love you. I will always love you. I'm not leaving you. I’m just upset.


Then why are you leaving now. Don’t leave me upset like this. You can’t leave me like this. What are you doing?


I need to leave, but I love you. you can always cry on me, i'll never judge you ever. I'll never leave you. I'll always be here for you.


You’re leaving now!


she couldn’t stop the tears from falling, but being in his arms made her feel safe, like nothing could hurt her. she listened to his heart beat, and held him tightly to her. Pressed against his chest, her head on his shoulder. The tears kept coming, she knew the safety she now felt wouldn’t last. 

He took his fingers to her lips, traced them, kissed them. Gently, lightly, with what she thought was love. 


Suddenly, he pushed her down on the couch. he walked out of the room without glancing back at her. She stared up at him, waiting for him to turn around, to look back, to think twice. She stayed up all night. Waiting for a text, a call, a message saying he still loved her. 


She never got it. 






why do you do this to me? you tell me your happy. you tell me you care. you tell me you love me. then you push me away. you tell me not to touch you. you push me away. you bring me close again, and push me down again. It kills me. you really know how to get to me. why do you want to make me upset. Make yourself upset?  I’m not sure. all i want is your love. and you can’t go all in. you always hold back. i can feel it. your holding back your love, reminding yourself of the past.
