"These violent delights have violent ends And in their triumph die, like fire and powder
Which, as they kiss, consume”~William Shakespeare...so it is better to not even let them begin...or is it worth whatever pain will follow?

The sound of the rain filled your car as we sat together in silence. You looked in my eyes as you brushed my hair out of my face. As your hands gently rubbed my legs. My stomach. My waist. You asked me what I wanted to do. I looked in your eyes and said “I trust you”……..  Two weeks later: I looked in your eyes and asked if you used me, if you hated me now, if I legitimately annoyed you as much as you keep saying I do. You gave me a reply but I wanted an answer. You gave me a hug and said to relax. I spend the day waiting for tomorrow when I can ask what I need to know. After class I watch you walk off with her and sit down at a table. Of course I don’t give up. I need my answers. I sit down and watch you flirt with her. Same way you use to flirt with me. Exactly the same way. I spend the next week sitting with you, watching as you ignore me, as everything starts to change. You call me a bitch and insult me whenever I sit down. I take as many cheap jabs at you whenever the opportunity comes up.We look in each others eyes; they say the words we will never hear. That night I walk past a mirror and pause. I look in my eyes and I don’t see me. As I lay in my bed that night I let the hurt, the pain, the confusion pour from my eyes. I let it go. I let him go. We walk past each other in the halls. He pauses and looks in my eyes.I look away and keep walking. I had my answers.
