I was in love with her deeply,
but I kept these feelings to myself secretly.
It's just as well because she destroyed me completely.
My world came crashing down to a most miserable end
when she told me,
"I like you so much. Can't we be friends?"
At one time the above would have broken my heart,
but being "friends" with so many, so often
has gotten my heart to grow stronger, yet hard.
