So tell me, what is it that you want to hear? What do you expect from me? You’ve taken everything already, so I will give you all you need and more.

This is a clean break. You didn’t crumble my heart into tiny pieces that can’t be put back together. You didn’t lie to my face and play me for a fool; no, you’d never do that. If you want me to tell you that I am fine, then I am. I will be alright without you and I will never miss you like you fear I would. Someday we will be friends, as though none of this ever happened.

Is this what you want to hear? There it is. It is quite easy to lie, as you should know. Anything more I can cut out of my flesh for you? Have you had enough? I didn’t think so.
