You can't do this.

I know what you're up to, I see right through those walls. It's typical. I should have seen it coming. The brown-green eyes, the dark hair, you're the exact recipe for a player. I thought I was smarter than this but evidently I'm not. You had those steps you went through that made me fall for you. Those single five steps.

Number one: you let me catch you staring at me. You capture my eyes in yours for just that second that makes me start to fall. Number two: when you know that I'm watching you from my peripheral vision, you copy the drumming of my fingers, the position of my hands, the crossing of my legs and then look slightly over your shoulder to me. You're saying, I'm watching you too. Number three: you sit so close to me that our bodies almost touch. You taunt me, daring me to move that millimeter distance to close the gap between us. Number four: you walk so close to me but pretend I'm not even there. Your elbow accidentally brushes me and your hip grazes mine but you don't turn round and you don't apologuise. So I fall back and when you slow your pace also I fall even further, that I'm getting in too deep. Number five: you just are. Every time I see you something small inside me breaks. Little cracks spread across my heart and the stitches holding it together start to break. You can't do this to me. I can't crumble inside. But I seem to be.

You irritate me with your little signs, you make me read into everything far too much. Everytime you “tweet” me, that all too familiar grin seeps across my face. That’s the only proper thing we have.

But you can’t do this to me. You can’t just play with somebody’s emotions like this. I sit outside and think about you. I look for signs in the universe that mean we should be together and exaggerate anything. I'll grasp at any strings if they'll lead me to you.

You can’t do this to me and them. Yeah, I know about them. The other girls that you have wrapped around your finger. I know more about you than I should. I listen to each and every word you say and wish that they were aimed at me.

Don’t sit next to me.

Don’t smile at me.

Those cracks along my heart are getting deeper. My heart’s on its way out, crumbling inside me that I double over. You can’t do this to me.

I fell. And I fell hard. You didn't even... want, let alone try, to catch me. You just wanted to watch the show. Once again, you can't do this to me.
