you know he isn’t–so, why pretend?
you know him well.
so, you can tell that losing
has never been his strongest point.
if you were to lessen your pride
and see the truth for once;
you’ll realize the fact
that he, like you, is human, too.
with that said, you need to accept
that he can be hurting–just like, you do.
now, does your pride matter more
than the knowledge that you can also
help soothe his pain?
you say you love him, so prove that now.
he needs a friend and not a foe.
forego your pain, for now.
be his friend–and do it well.
you love him, so that’s what it means.
loving is giving, despite the pain.
