A letter to the boy who tried to fool me,
Thank you for saying how beautiful I am each day. Thank you for saying all of the right things at exactly the right times. Thank you for making all of the other guys out there look like total assholes because your words sound so promising. Thank you for making me think you were interested in a relationship because you are looking for something ‘long term’. Oh! and ‘the right girl’. Thank you for telling me all of these things but not acting out the actions. Thank you for not following through. Thank you for not “being like the other guys”. Thank you for sparing me a heartbreak that I don’t want or need from someone like you.
The girl you didn’t fool
A letter to the guy who did fool me,
Thank you for always picking up the pieces even when you were the one who put them there. Thank you for coming around when I needed you most and saying you’re sorry even when you didn’t mean it and you knew you would do it again. Thank you for making me feel special with a hug or a kiss on the forehead in the middle of the night when I was awake and thinking about you and how perfect we could be. Thank you for playing games just enough to keep me attached to you long enough to ruin anything I could potentially have with a great guy. Thank you for saying all the wrong things right. Thank you for not letting me waste anymore time on you because I finally woke up and stopped sticking up for you and your shitty actions in front of my friends.
The girl you fooled for a moment
A letter to the man who didn’t want to fool me,
Thank you for being honest even when I didn’t want to hear it. Thank you for calling me out when I am being a bitch. Thank you for telling me no and telling me to do it myself. Thank you for sticking around when things got hard but we knew it was too good for goodbye. Thank you for not being perfect and looking past my imperfections. Thank you for introducing me to your parents so I could see where you come from and how much you love your mom. Thank you for looking at me in the bar when there are plenty of other pretty girls to look at. Thank you for not playing games with my heart and for giving me yours. Thank you for giving me the faith that we can look ahead to a future together and not backwards to a past apart. Thank you for doing what you say you’re going to do.
The girl who wants to be a fool for you
