Why I Do Not Want to Hear That You Love Me

My friends do not understand

Every one of their smiles is a noose

Every act of friendship is another weight on my shoulders

I am weighed down by love, I am weary from carrying it so long, so far

I cannot hold this heaviness much longer

I cannot hold onto this burden

Knowing I do not deserve it

Knowing it is not meant for me

Knowing I should not accept it

Knowing how wasted it is on me

As a gay man I can readily relate to your words of anguish. Keep writing. I would like to read more. Thanks. Keith
