"Do I have to explain myself all the time? I am too tired of defending myself," a text message went. It struck me.
It continued, "You are surrounded by people who don't like me and those people who don't know me. The fact that it contributes why you don't trust me back. I have to endure it all the time."
It is such a pitiful thing for someone to recieve a message a such. But no one really knows the reason behind it.
"And it has been hard for me - to keep what I feel - because I am a very vocal person. I have opened myself to you and have made you understand why I act this way. I have been waiting for that time when the people around you would see me the way you do. But it all seems hopeless."
The message went on as if it will never end.
"I can't blame you for being rude towards me now. I do understand. I never left you hanging. I was just waiting for you to go beyond the box everyody has placed me in. I wanted you to trust me because it starts from there."
What a painful scenario.
"I have been wanting to call you mine but you were too worried about what people has to say and of how they'd react to it. I didn't say I'm correct most of the time because I have flaws too. I am human."
Tsk. Tsk. The bitter reality of love.
"It struck me when you said, "Ever since." It only proves that you haven't gotten out of that box. That's why I have been holding back. We just had that talk two nights ago and it went well. But if you still see me the way other people do, with your reaction and with the circumstances now, I can't do anything about it anymore."
I love the last part. Trust me, I do.
