that awkward moment when a guy you're really good friends with confesses to you and you honestly don't know how to react or explain or avoid as much hurt for both of you as possible

You took my hand

You showed me a smile

Meaningful words

A strange little spark

Of love or maybe passion

You reached out to me

But I cannot feel it

The warmth or the light

The moment died

And I could see that this spark

It was fading away

I didn’t mean to hurt

I could never mean to make you cry

And yet in your eyes

I can the sadness reflecting

Your feelings

You learnt that a briar rose could have thorns

That a love is often unrequited

And the regret I feel

I wanted you to be happy

But my heart so cold it will burn you if you touch

Stay away

I don’t want to hurt you anymore

Stay away
