While you wonder how's this gonna End, I only wanted to Begin.

"Ah Well. Can't say I didn't see this coming."
She smiled a smile to herself.
A smile that didn't quite reach her eyes. Nowhere near, in fact.

You'd think you'd get used to it by now.
No matter how many times it happened, you'd think being human and learning from mistakes would help you feel it less. But maybe she was being more human than she'd ever been- to realise that it would hurt just as badly as the first time, even more so, but never any less.
Scar tissue was a myth.


Sometimes it ended up like a messy trainwreck.
And sometimes it was silent and still as a hot summer day.
But you always saw it coming.
Always.


'How long do I have to stand,
With my head stuck under the sand?'
Chris Martin wailed despondently..


"At this rate..as long as it takes.."
Having made a small, silent, private resolve, She smiled a smile to herself.


One that didn't quite reach her eyes.

why does she do this to herself?

she knew the consequenses, she heard the warnings. She even had her friends tell her it was no good.

perhaps she likes the rejection. it makes her different somehow. the way she likes it.

failures in relationships are easier when your not the one with the flaws. is this why she likes the wrong guys? is she scared of finding the right guy?

Love, no matter how new or how old,
cannot be forgotten, left in the cold.
But its your time now, close the old file
remember that you were wanted and smile.
