Me and My Beautiful Lies

by MG


I love being alone,

I said.


And I wondered what it feels to have someone waiting on you. To have someone thinking of you, talking to you, listening to you. To have someone who loves being with you.



I want to be alone forever,

I said.


And I wondered what it feels to have someone to call yours. To have someone who treasures your existence as much as you treasured theirs. To have someone whose eyes would light up at the mere sight of you.



I don't want anyone to love me,

I said.


And I wondered what it feels to have someone who would notice the little things you do. To have someone who respects you, holds you dear, puts your best interest in mind. To have someone who would rather die than to lose you.



I don't really like romance stories,

I said.


And I wondered what it feels to live stories beautiful enough to be carved between the pages. To have one turned into poems and songs. To have one people adores and envies.



My heart may dream.


But so long as my brain exists, I knew better than to wish for the nonexistent.


My heart may dream.


But so long as my lungs breathe, I knew better than to expect something only reserved for the lucky.



For I am not one born with luck.



So be quiet.


Let me drown in my own lies.


Do not prove me wrong.


For I'm content to live the rest of my life this way.
