Stop calling, stop texting
please leave me alone.
I dont want to hear your voice,
echoing through my phone.
Being the object of unrequited love
is a strong strain on a kind heart.
Forced to let you down
and forced to do it again.
is like walking on broken glass;
Trying to give the brutal truth
And trying not to be harsh.
Constantly afraid you'll read flirtation
between the lines of my kindness.
Unwanted love, so infrequently addressed,
is the worst punishment for a sweet soul.
I keep trying to make you see,
trying to the nth degree,
you should not be interested in me.
We were friends once upon a time.
And while I grew up,
you wanted me to stay young,
clinging to a forgotten version of me.
Please stop calling
Just leave me alone
