I look up at him, into his eyes. I see our past, endless days of laughter and kisses. I see what could have been our future, filled with happiness and love. I never thought it would lead to this. He leans down to kiss me but I turn my head. I look back up just in time to catch the hurt in his eyes. It rips my heart in two, I never wanted to hurt him. I see the tears in his eyes, but I can’t bring myself to apologize. Suddenly I grow angry. Why should I feel guilty? He doesn’t know what it feels like. But as I look down and see his affectionate hands, I am overwhelmed with a sudden desire to forget everything, to put my hand in his and watch them fit together perfectly, to feel his lips touch my neck so softly, to feel his heartbeat on mine. I resist the temptation, and rip his heart out of his chest as I walk away. I feel his loving eyes on my back, burning holes in me, but I don’t turn around. I sense his tears dropping from the corners of his beautiful eyes onto his bare chest. It takes all my remaining strength not to turn back and wipe them away with kisses, as he did for me so many times before. I wrap my arms around myslef, suddenly cold because I don’t have his tender arms to warm me anymore. Before I round the corner, I look back one last time, and his image breaks me. He stands there, shattered, like a lost puppy, his chest heaving as he looks at me with pleading eyes. I never wanted it to end like this. I never wanted him.
