You were aware of the danger of being close to me
Your hands were once burnt when you touched me
The hug was unwelcome.
For you surprised me and the hurt and pain in your eyes
was unbearable to watch.
I didn’t want to hurt you but something inside of me was not aware of how
I felt for you and so I burnt you but I didn’t mean to.
Overtime you grew to be more careful and but you never got close to me again
and begin to wonder if you will ever trust me again and be aware I won’t ever hurt you again.
