I think I need to distance myself from you.
I thought that I could continue being your friend.
I thought I could do this.
I cry every time you leave.
I can’t understand why you do and say the things you do, but you claim to not have feelings for me.
I don’t think I can handle being your friend, especially being just your friend.
What happens when you meet someone?
What happens when you move on from me?
What happens when I’m no longer needed?
I love being here for you, especially because I feel that you met me for a reason.
I’m in your life for a reason.
I just hope that whatever that reason is, that it is fulfilled soon.
Because I can’t keep pretending.
I can’t keep pretending that I’m the “cool girl” who can just turn her feelings off.
Or ignore them.
Or tell them to go away.
I can’t keep pretending that I’m not wanting every single piece of you every single minute we’re together. And not together.
I’m trying so hard to keep it together. I’m trying so hard to be a good friend. I respect that you don’t feel the same way towards me, but that doesn’t mean that it’s easy.
It’s not easy joking around with you.
It’s not easy having your arms around me.
It’s not easy looking over at you and catching you staring at me.
None of this is easy at all.
I’m constantly walking on eggshells so I don’t say something stupid or so I don’t freak you out and at the same time I’m trying to maintain how I’ve always acted around you.
I wish I never told you how I felt. Because at least then I could keep pretending that you wanted this too.
And you don’t.
And so I’m stuck.
I’m stuck between wanting you and wanting to be over you.
I wish I knew the right thing to do.
