The Hardest Thing

It's the hardest thing
for me to say this.
You took my hand as if
you thought I really loved you back,
but I know
that I really don't.
But I say nothing,
So I can spare your fragile, shy, little heart.

Time let our friendship grow,
and you want to be
more
than just a friend
of mine.
But don't lose hope on yourself
when I choke on my words
telling you
I don't feel the same way.

Letting go of your hand
was hard
But letting go of your fragile, shy, little heart
that I was one to know
would surely
break
into a million desperate pieces.

That's what stopped me.
That' what made me
crack.
I couldn't break you.
Your
fragile, shy, little heart.
But I cannot lie
to you or anyone about the feelings
of my heart.

I love someone else.
And that is the hardest thing to say
to someone
like you
who loved me deeply.
