Want You But Can't Have You.

I fell in love with her. We both were in love with each other. But as time went by things were getting worse between us. She didn't trust me and I couldn't trust her, and if there isn't any trust then the relationship can't work. We both were told that but we didn't want to listen to anyone. A year went by and things were good, we didn't fight anymore. But as soon as school started again. She began to say that I like someone else, And as many times that I would tell her I only wanted to be with her. The more she would say that I was lying to her. Then winter break came along, and she finally told me that she didn't love me anymore. Which I felt like she should of told me a lot sooner. I can't sit here and say that I don't miss her. I know that the love that I had for her is gone. I just miss her being here. I think that its good that we're not together anymore. Because it gave me the chance to be free and do things that I couldn't do when I was with her. I can finally talk and hang out with my best friend, and now I have more money to save.
