Half the Truth

by katarinaalice

I'll tell you half the truth

but nothing more than that because I'm scared if you knew everything you wouldn't treat me like you did.

So half the truth is

that I'm sad, almost every day since then

but, of course,

I wouldn't tell you that because I don't want you to worry or to ruin all your happiness.

So half the truth is

that I'm scared, and you're so distant, you never were it makes me scared to lose you because you're the best thing that is here.

but, of course,

I wouldn't tell you that because you would only say "Don't worry, I'm not going back."

And half the truth is

that I like you, but you already know

So there's no need to tell you that because the answer's not

"I like you more."
