The Strength of Stubborness

People say you like me.
they say I'm being stupid and we should just date already,
but I'm scared.
I have only ever opened myself up to a friend once.
But he rejected me,
And our friendship collapsed.

I'm afraid to lose another friend,
Especially you. I'd rather be your friend then have you reject me
Because I still believe you could never like me.

So let them say what they want.
We'll stay as we are, not taking any risks,
To keep our friendship stable
You thinking I don't like you, me thinking you could never like me,
And neither of us ever knowing the truth.
Suffering silently alone, yet somehow together.

Very relatable, but try to spice it up a bit! :)
