Just because there’s a wedge of space and emotional distance between us, doesn’t mean my assessment of you – as someone special – was wrong.
Because I still believe that I have the ability to sift for gems, and recognize the valuable ones. If I completely discard you, then I am a fraud.
But in the interest of protecting my heart, perhaps being a fraud is not the worst thing I can be. Maybe you’re just like the rest, I lie.
