If I Treated You The Way You Treat Me

Would you be happy, or would you be disappointed? What goes around, comes around, doesn’t it? Do you believe that? Do I believe it? Is there anything that can really be believed or is it just a fleeting moment that’s never given a second thought?

If I treated you the way you treated me, you wouldn’t hold your breath. You would be destroyed. Lost. Abandoned. Just like me. You’re no better than me. Neither am I than you.

You look at me once. I appreciate it.
You look at me twice. I’m glad.
You look at me thrice. I’m overjoyed.
You look away and I fall apart.

You rely on me to answer before your thumb print has the chance to leave its mark on the key. The key that connects me to you, you to me. When I hold the phone patiently waiting to hear your voice, I get an automated one in return. Dare I ask you why, you turn your back. Dare I do the same, I walk into a wall of fury and hatred.

What did I do to deserve this? I ask you, but you refuse to answer. Every day, I silently sit and wait on the bench for you to arrive. I wait, and wait, but to no avail. I pause. Reconsider why I am even waiting, but then I remember. If I treated you the way you treat me, then we would never be in this situation.

We would be apart. Further than the physical distance between us. You are cold and uncaring towards me, yet expect me to be warm and caring in return. Fire and ice can be a beautiful thing once combined, but as soon as they touch, they evaporate. So I ask you, is it even worth it?

I try and try, to the point where I lay down, curl up and cry. I’m hopeless. I know. A lost cause if you will. I try and cling to you, while you shrug me off like some pest.

I extend my hand to you, and you smack it back in my face. Have I really disappointed you so? At night, I lie awake and stare at the pale moonlit ceiling. Thoughts run through my head faster than lost animals searching for their way back home.

I ask for your friendship, you give me regret and pain, but I cling on. You ask me for friendship, I give you memories and a smile, but you push me over the cliff behind me.

I ask why. Tears stream down my face, and all you do is smile. You’re relieved. You’re glad. And I’m happy for you. I watch you turn your back and walk away while I lay down and bleed.

But I’m glad. You’re happy, and that’s all I care about. You had your fun at my expense, and I accepted it.

If I treated you like you treat me, how long would it take me to turn into you? Because I know that you could never turn into me.

      Thank you and as for a second part, that is still debatable. To be honest, this post was just a spur-of-the-moment kind of thing, but you’re more than welcome to stick around to see if a second one does appear.

    Heya this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if
    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

      Since I’m using WP, I only use the basic codes that comes with it. Glad to hear that your starting your own blog, but I would suggest expanding on other, more official sources for help with coding and such.

    Going through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He constantly kept preaching about this. I most certainly will send this
    information to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read.

    Thanks for sharing!

      Hi,

      I’m glad that you think mine is well-established, but honestly there are still quite a few things that I need to sort out with it, but thank you for the compliment. As for starting a blog, it is definitely a lot of work and can cut into your personal time like nothing, but despite that, blogging can be a lot of fun.

      My recommendations would probably be to start off slow and get adjusted to some kind of regular posting schedule, or you could post whenever you feel like it, since it is your blog and how you run it is entirely up to you. Other than that, writing about your experiences and things you know could be a great start. And never be afraid to try and explore new topics – just make sure to do your research first.

      Other than that, it’s simply about having fun and expressing how you feel, at least that’s been my experience. Really hope this helps and good luck.

    I have been browsing on-line more than 3 hours nowadays, yet I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.

    It is beautiful price sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and
    bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the net can be much more useful than ever before.
