I never truly understood the stories

Where the girl would spend weeks pining after some guy

"Way out of her league"

Who didn't even know her name

After she saw him with another woman


I never truly understood your pain

When you would tell me of the girl you had loved for years

"Obviously straight"

The one who held your heart

As another held hers and crushed yours


I still don't truly understand the reason

That I am sitting up at 2 am writing another entry about you 

"Don't feel the same way"

I can't outrun the hurt

While I paste a smile because

I'm so excited you've found some happiness
