relationships can be an interesting journey when you are still searching for the one you will love always

You say that you have changed
That yo u are over her
But I know
that people can't change so much
in such a short time
A week will never be all you need
You remember her because she broke your heart
And because of that you are breaking mine
You say that I am your dream girl
And that  you know I feel the same way
But now I must give you the check
                - the reality check
I don't feel the same way
I've been hurt enough before
and once by you
I don't want that again
I'm forgetting the feelings you made me feel
I'm moving on slowly
Thinking about what I want to do in the next six months
And in these thoughts you are a friend
Not a partner
I did feel how you think I feel now
but I stopped feeling that
Nobody can change in a week
It's impossible
I've had it promised before
and that promise was broken
You won't be any other
you'll just do it in a different way
So do as I have
and move on
because the more you try to convince me
you're just trying to convince yourself
and that's hurting me
but it's going to hurt you more
You say you've changed but I know that you haven't
You've just found a way to cover and hide the feelings
I should know
I've done it before
And it hurt myself and them when I tried
There is a rule that has been known for centuries
It involves cruelty and kindness
And although I don't want to
I will if it needed of me
If you give me no choice
I will be cruel 
to be kind

One should flee-fly-flap away to freedome. Why lock one's own chain?
Great work Cassie.

Be cruel to be kind takes strength but sometimes it needs to be that way.
