I mean he’s still “here.”
I see him here and there. And I started talking to him again but not like I used to… I can’t talk to him like I used to because I know he only says lies.
So it would be a little weird to miss him if he’s “here” and he’s not like in some other country or leaving my messages on read in the summer (was that shade? Nope, it was the honest truth) right?
I miss him.
By this, I mean the him I fell for.
Not the him I know now.
Just a few months ago, he was different. It’s honestly like I’m talking to a different person… That’s what it feels like.
I know that there can be a lot of sides to a person, but him?
It was hard to know who I was talking to on a day. A jerk or the one I fell for.
Who’s the “him” I fell for?
The one who cared about my day and asked how I was doing. The one who would text me as soon as he woke up, I knew because the time stamp said 5am or 7am and would tell me “Good morning” or “Good afternoon.” The one who could tell something was wrong with me just because of a couple of words and actually cared enough to know what was wrong. It never felt forced. The one who used to want to know about my secrets and my past. The one who wanted me to be happy and have a good day and if I didn’t, he would want to know what went wrong. The one who asked me about my anxiety and looked at me in a way nobody ever did.
The one that whenever something happened, he used to be one of the people or the only person I wanted to tell because I felt safe telling him and I knew he wouldn’t judge me.
Now all that’s left of him?
A jerk with a big ego always making jokes wanting to outmatch me.
He was always “outmatching” me before. I mean if he was sweet all the time? That would be too much sugar. The outmatching was balanced with the sweetness.
But over time, the sweetness went away and all that was left was salt. And if salt could be expired (in an alternate universe)… he would be like expired salt.
He doesn’t do any of the sweet stuff mentioned above anymore. All he does is “play games” coming for my shortness in jokes wanting me to come back at him with a joke. I don’t really mind this, but the fact that this is what’s left of us? It’s sad. It’s like his sweetness was a guest who didn’t want to stay for too long.
And when he does “care” it just seems so forced considering all the other crap he’s put my heart and me through. If you read the messages, it would be evident he doesn’t care or he doesn’t care like he used to.
i miss him.
i miss the him who did all the sweet things above.
i miss the one i fell for.
i wish to see him again someday.
but he might never show up again.
because he’s being taken over by another.
what changed? i don’t know.
why doesn’t he care anymore? i don’t know.
i don’t know what happened to him.
but can he tell that him that i miss him?
will that make him come back?
or is this who he really is?
who was “he” then?
did that “him” ever exist?
was he fake?
i don’t know.
all i know is that i miss him.
Whoever he was.
And as long as that him is gone,
I’m currently not falling for anyone.
