"You don't try your hardest at something for over a year then just give up."
He watches you. He watches you as you eat in silence.
And his eyes?
They burn with a pain that you know so well.
Water glistening behind the macho facade.
As the green ice cream becomes witness.
You wanted to yell. To scream. To take his hand and cry.
You sit there.
You watch him.
As he watches you.
Studying every inch of his face.
Knowing. Knowing that that would be it.
Why? Why? WHY?
You ask without an answer in sight.
It's been a long time coming.
But know this. If a guy is strong enough to show his heart to you. Able to look into your eyes and withstand the tears that threaten to flow.
Know that this is one that you will always remember. To the end of time.
Because no guy would cry in front of you unless you're it.
You're the one.
And he's just too stupid or blind.
Or you're just too stupid or blind.
To see that he just wants what's best for you.
