and then i loved them

I looked him in the eye demanding a straight up answer.
"Well," I finally said, "Did you?"
He gulped and looked away avoiding my eyes. This wasn't right. I shouldn't even have to ask him this. My heart felt like it was going to explode and I knew I couldn't take it much longer if he didn't answer.
"You are a coward." I whispered as tears began sliding down my cheeks. 
I kept watching him, hoping that he would answer. Praying that he would. 
His silence was all I needed to know that it was true.


The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Jeremiah 17:9
