That Day

I’ll never forget that day – what you said, how you said it, how it made me feel. It was when I realized that somewhere along the line you’d lost respect for me. Or maybe it had never been there. Other factors have come to light to suggest that’s the more likely case. I can’t forgive you for leading me to believe I mattered to you more than anyone else. I can’t forgive myself for believing it, even for a brief moment.
