Alter Ego 2

Well, what do we have here?

Leave me alone.

Something bad happened didn’t it? I could see this coming from a mile away.

If you knew why didn’t you warn me? Do you enjoy watching me suffer?

I tried, you starry eyed son of bitch. You were sure you knew what you were doing. I bet that arrogance stings now that you realize that you were wrong, that you know nothing.

You’re right. I was cautious, but there’s always a chance something can go wrong, especially if there’s other people involved. I wanted– no I needed to believe things would end differently this time. Can you blame me for being hopeful?

No but I can blame you for being reckless. People are cunning and inherently evil. How many times must I scrape you off the floor after you’ve fallen on your ass to realize this!? Stop trusting them so easily, it only hurts you more. Why can’t you just give in to the inevitable truth? Love is a pipe dream, a misguided notion. We we’re born alone and we will die alone.  That’s just the way it is.

I’ve already accepted your words as true, but I thought I’d try anyway. Maybe, just maybe I thought I could’ve proved you wrong; If I tried hard enough, I could’ve proved that love is real, but I guess not. There’s no need for me to hurt myself anymore. At least I can say I gave it a good try. There is only you and me, you and I.
