Please note this is a work of fiction.

I知 scared.

Not of some unknown villain.
Hiding behind my bedroom door.
Oh how I yearn that be the truth!
But It痴 not.

I知 scared

of me.

I知 scared of the things I feel.
The things I think.

I have no measuring stick for the turmoil in my heart.
Or mind.

Both actually.

I cannot even bear to think about the consequences of thinking about

Us? There is no Us.
I know that.
But I don稚 think my heart does.

It must. I think.
I will it to.

So I answered you the best way I could.
My Dear Friend.
It really was not a patronizing phrase,
It was from my heart, tempered by my

What better way to express what I must feel?
The way I have to feel.
For the other is inconceivable.

Do you hate me?
I know you say you don稚 and yet
If I were you,
I think perhaps

I would.

Hate me.

I think I do.

For the way I feel.
If I would allow myself to feel.
But I must not.

I heard your words as you wrote them,
I heard the words as you spoke them.
Your voice was in my mind,
As I read them.

That tortured me.

I wanted to say 全top!,
When you said you would entomb our bond.
But then again we have no bond.
Yes. We have no bond.

I can sit here and wait.
I can wait for tomorrow.
I will wait for tomorrow.
I will wait for the next day too.

Perhaps tomorrow I will be able to express clearly
What I cannot tell you.
Or the next day I will tell you what I cannot say.
Or perhaps the world will end

And then I wouldn稚 have to.
Tell me. I mean you.
What I feel.


I知 scared.

Of me.

Excellent! So open and free flowing which although some may say is not good...really is! :O)

Andrew, this is exceptional writing.
You have the talent to take the reader
with you thru your verses and feel what
you felt as you write them. Awesome
