"When he calls, don’t answer. When you get drunk and unblock his number, it is not a sign when you can’t remember it by heart to reblock it; it’s just the drunkness clouding your thoughts. You’ll remember it in the morning and you shouldn’t leave yourself open and vulnerable for him. Remember the nights waiting for his call. Remember all of the times that he was too busy for you. Remember the sweatshirt you left on the bus. That was a sign. You ignored it. Cover your ears when he says, “I see bits of you in everyone but nobody compares.” Compares to what? He takes you for granted and you let him. The reason he can say vulnerable things and you can’t is because he is lying and you know it. Leave. Don’t look back at him, always across town, always too close and close enough and too far away. Get out of town. Go to the ocean. Scream. Let the waves crash against your weakling legs. See that you are small and the world is big and he is small. There are bigger things. The ocean is bigger. Someday, you will be the ocean and he will be a grain of sand. Someday, his name won’t send chills down your spine."
