I saw him at a party

First time in a year

He told me he missed me

He whispered he loved me, so no one could hear

His words tugged at my heart,

I was in love with him – he was my weakness, my fear.

I told him I was happy

He only nodded and grabbed a beer

He said why don't you just meet her?

I looked away,

There was so much I kept hidden,

so much that I wanted to say

She was pretty – She was sweet

I just kept smiling, all I could muster in defeat.

He says he loves her,

Then why'd you cheat?
