I looked into his hazel eyes. They were sad, longing, broken-everything I felt all at once. I knew he was leaving me. Dammit, I knew he was a fucking wreck that had destroyed my life, but I knew I never had the guts to leave him. I wasn't strong enough. He had every part of me, and that was why we were disastrous. He owned my soul when he only let me have his heart. ❝You promised you were different.❞ I was crying. He never saw me cry before. ❝I know. I told you I hated liars. Why do you think I hate myself so much? I am the exact demon I warn others to steer clear of. I was just too selfish in the beginning to warn you because I wanted to be who you thought I was. I wanted to be the hero, and I felt like one with you. I couldn't stop this in the beginning because I loved you too much, too hard, and too fast. You gave me light in a dark world, and I was too selfish to save you from my darkness as I stole your light.❞ I was pretty sure he was crying too. ••••• Not every first love is the right choice.
