There’s always a hidden message when she talks to you. A little bit of truth behind every ‘I don’t know.’ A little bit of curiosity behind every ‘I was just wondering.’ A little bit of emotion behind every ‘I don’t care.’ A little bit of pain behind every ‘It’s okay.’ A little bit of love behind every ‘I hate you.’ A little bit of ‘I need you’ behind every ‘Leave me alone.’ A little bit of ‘I miss you’ behind every ‘It’s been awhile.’ A little bit of jealousy behind every ‘She’s really pretty.’ A little bit of fear behind every ‘I love you.’
You are a fading dream, but one that has been touched by reality. Run, dream. Run on into the daylight. And walk into reality.
That’s what happens when you make bad decisions in your life. You can’t go to the White House. —
