Have you ever hurt someone deliberately, because they meant so much to you?
Well, I have and let me tell you that it isn't a great feeling.
Its quite hard to get away from one's own conscience. In my case it was a friend I loved, my buddy! yet feared that my love may be misconstrued in a way that may hurt him or her.
So I had to push the person away from me, harshly, although secretly I never wanted to.
Now I'm left with the stigma, a subconscious itch; Oh how I wish humans could telepathically connect!
