Too Hurt to Say

I nodded, too hurt to say how I really felt. So I smiled, and you smiled— You understand, right? This isn’t mutual and I’m just too busy. (Too busy for your best friend? Or maybe I wasn’t, but she was to me.) Sure I do, and now it’s mutual. You left, but I don’t think you knew how much it…
