One step at a time
"Why can't you see that I love you!" Damien yelled at me.
"Because your a damn fool to love someone like me!" I yelled back. Tears ran down my face as I looked at him. I told him not to love me, that I could never love him back so why would he do this?
"Maybe I am a fool but Toby I love you. I've loved you ever since you punched me in the parking lot at JJ's." I shook my head at his words. He can't love me, no one can love me and I can never love them back. Damien took his last two steps in front of me and took my face in his hands, causing me to look up at him.
"I know your scared that I'll leave you like him but baby I could never leave your side. And I know what your thinking Toby but you can love and be loved. I can love you like no one else can sunny. But you have to trust me and yourself."
"Your wrong Damien. Someone like me can never love you like you deserve to be loved. Damien please walk away from me and let me go. Found someone who can share their life with you, someone who can build their dreams with you, someone who can give all of themselves to you. Damien, I can never give you what you want. I can't give you a good little house wife, who will do what you say and when you say. Damien you want a family and I can't give you that. So please Damien let me go." I pleaded with him but he just smiled at me.
"Toby none of that matters to me. All I want is you and to love you. Everything else will fall into place, we just take it one step at a time." Damien moved his face closer to mine. He was going to kiss me and I knew if he did I would never let him go. So I move out of his arms and took a step back. His smile fall from his face and sadness replaced it.
I turned around and started to walk away. Leaving the only man I've ever loved behind me along with my heart.
