This is why I didn’t want you to be too sweet. This is why I told you to stop being too generous with your compliments. This is why I scrunch up my nose whenever you say something cheesy.
Because now I’m too dependent on it.
Because I soak up your affection like a drug.
Because I knew it wouldn’t last.
But no, I let myself fall. I let myself bask in your sweet words. I let myself depend too much even when I swore I didn’t.
Now it’s retreating. And seriously, I don’t want to be that girl. The clingy girlfriend.
So I won’t be. I won’t let myself be that. Even if I already failed once, I won’t again. This is one resolution that I have to stick with religiously.
