Daily Prompt: Aware

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.
