Rage welled in me as I watched Lindsey go.
She took the hand of my ex-crush,
and I realized I was powerless to stop her hatred.
You don’t know me!
Everything shimmered like a melting pane of glass,
as if rage had made reality into a mirage.
“You know you’re better than her,”
Gary said from behind me.
You’re just going out with him
because I was going out with
the one you really wanted,
Lindsey said in my head.
The sad part was that I did not really know
whether that was true.
I turned my head into Gary’s chest.
