I drove you out of my life. I’m sorry.
The last thing I wanted was to hurt you.
My love was unrequited. Forgive me.
You don’t love me that way. I never knew.
Obsession? Perhaps. Infatuation?
Of course. I thought you were off the chain.
I acted out of sheer desperation.
Something about you made me go insane.
I made you ill at ease. Apologies.
I never had any friends as a kid.
And then I kissed you! I had weakened knees.
And to this day, I regret what I did.
It’s been years since, and I think of you still.
A second chance as friends? I hope you will.
