"I love you"
"I love you" his voice was shaky, eyes glued to the girl as she walked away
her breath hitched
she wanted to turn around
to tell him she felt the same way he did
but she couldn't
her pride wouldn't let her
so, instead, she decided to shake her head
"don't lie to me,"
the crack in her voice was enough for him to know she didn't want to walk away
she didn't want to walk away from him
from their life together
but he also knew he was helpless as she took her first step
it signalled the end
the end of something beautiful
