We started out as a beautiful lie,
Then it turned to a painful truth.
Everyone knew it.
We were the only ones not wanting to accept our own feelings.
They wanted us together.
We didn't know.
We didn't know what people thought of us, and we didn't know what they wanted.
We drifted apart.
I still miss you.
I see you in the hallways.
We will never have this chance again.
The others don't understand us when we say "no".
They just expect us to know right away.
There is no "Us" anymore.
There will never be an us.
All because you said no.
