There was a time ....

There was a time when I was completely taken by you. There was a time when I would jump as soon as you called. There was a time when I would've given anything to be the guy you wanted. But I moved on. That time has passed. I'm not going to be your rebound. I'm not going to feed your ego. I'm not going to be the guy you recover off of. I'm not going to shower you with gratuitous compliments because you keep fishing. I'm not going to drop everything when you call, and I'm not going to stay up late because you want to talk.

I'm going to keep living the life I've been living while you were happily in love. That life didn't include you as a prospect, and my life still doesn't. There was a time when it could have been, but that door has closed. Don't pout or whine because I have a life that doesn't include you anymore. Your life path took you down a road, and I was there to listen when you needed a friend. But that's all I am - a friend. And I'm not going to sit here and pretend that I'm interested in being more.
