we all see that which we choose to see.

its so easy to deduce the wrong meaning from a couple of loosely connected words that are put haphazardly in a sentence by the people around us- the people that concern us.

yes.

like the time she said:
I

love

you.

- God knows what was going through my mind for me to conclude that she LOVED me- as in had feelings for me, cared about me... gave a crap. whereas what she actually meant was...well I wish i knew.

"my heart aches and a drowsy numbness pains my senses."

where do we go wrong?
where does one start sifting through all the conversations and try to deduce and interpret THE truth?
how do you know its true?
how do you understand what she's saying?
why would she lie to me?
and in falling for a lie, what lies am i telling?
who am i lying to more- myself or her?

Sometimes, one can get confused...

Maybe she was confused, not lying... Maybe she did love you, but the heart is fickle... Maybe you don't have to blame her, or yourself for the way her hormones have been yanking her about...

I agree with drank-poison. It

I agree with drank-poison. It is possible that she was not purposefully lying to you, and maybe she did indeed have feelings of love for you. Maybe she just didn't quite understand which way she loved you, and maybe she expressed it incorrectly. Or maybe I am way off-base.

If it's a sin to love you
Then in hell i'd rather be
Opposed to living a life with people
In heaven looking down on me
