I’ll never get you back because I stopped making you chase me.
I’ll never get you back because I’m too available for you.
I’ll never get you back because I don’t demand your respect.
And if I did, you wouldn’t be interested in a conversation.
“Well, sweetheart,” you must be thinking, “sounds like you’re wasting your time on someone who is completely disinterested in a relationship with you.”
No shit, Sherlock. Trust me, I’m well aware that he doesn’t want to be my anything.
The hard part is applying that knowledge and actively moving on escaping his reach. Especially when every. single. year. there comes a time in late August when the man you thought was the one seeks out your conversation and company again.
Just for one or two days though, if you’re lucky.
In the span of 48 hours, he has you hooked again.
His love is your drug, one taste and you’re done for.
In the span of 48 hours, the progress you had made over 3 months evaporates.
He has put you back into his repertoire with one text.
And while you’re on his back burner,
You’re the booty call, sweetheart.
He doesn’t truly care about you.
He doesn’t love you anymore.
You have to remember this, you can’t forget it.
You can’t forget about all of the reasons he isn’t right for you.
You can’t forget about all of the times he hurt you.
You can’t forget about all of the mistrust and resentment between you.
You can’t forget everything because in the span of 48 hours he has renewed your hope.
Don’t give someone that kind of power over you.
Think back on all that has happened, all that has come between you…
For Valentine’s day, many years ago, he gave you a watch that was engraved: “Our love is timeless.”
Realize that while your love may always exist, that fact doesn’t expel its’ toxicity.
I’ll never take you back, because you’re not the one.
I’ll never take you back because I refuse to settle for less than what I deserve.
I’ll never take you back because I don’t want you back.
In fact, I don’t want you at all.
