he said he wanted to respect me because he loved me. but i don’t think he knows the meaning of those two words. i deserved respect before her name left your lips and before your lips met hers. i deserved respect before you woke me up in the middle of the night asking me what i thought we were, knowing full well i thought of the world. i deserved respect before you left me here to rot while you fell even deeper in love with the girl you always respected more than me.
