When I say I miss you, it’s not you that I miss. I just miss the memories and I miss what we had. I miss the beach and Mongolian BBQ. I miss all the things I will never experience again.
When I say I want you back, you have to understand I don’t want who you are now. I want who you used to be and the way we used to be.
When I say I love you, I hope you know I am not in love with you anymore. I just have love for you. I want the best for you and hope you’re happy, but I don’t look at you and become filled with happiness and love anymore.
I hate when I hear bad things about you. I hate to see you struggling with something, but most of all I hate that we don’t even smile at each other anymore.
I will always care, even if I don’t want to be with you.
I could never say any of this out loud to anyone, so I hope you read this and know who you are. Maybe, one day, we could go back to that beach and be happy again.
