Dear Hanging-Back Haitham,
Please, I am begging you, stay away from me! I SPENT HOURS, weeks, and months, discussing my future, our future, telling you my innermost secretive thoughts. I even fought with my parents for you, only to hear that you just see me as a ‘friend.’
Seriously? I didn’t know friends flirted with each other, I didn’t know you called all the women in your life beautiful, and gorgeous. I didn’t know you talked about marriage as if you had someone in MIND. I didn’t know you would speak to your other friends till late into the night about our religion. I feel like I am going nuts!
The master of saying things without really saying anything, the ghost, the wriggler able to get out of any situation at any time. You’re cunning ill give you that, a master deceiver. Well, you did it, you did the job, you deceived me! I hope that gives you gratification, I hope you realise later on I really liked you, we had a good thing. Don’t miss me too much when there is a gaping hole in your heart where I used to be that no one else can fill.
From an over it Muslimah.
