    It was a particularly cold summer night when he expressed to me
    His feelings in which I had feared for some time
    And something had already told me what was soon to come
    In fact, that specific “something” was constantly invading my mind,
    Creeping into dreams, and down right taking over my imagination
    So I tried my very best to push all attraction to the side
    Because there were absolutely no other logical options
    But that summer night when he said that he loved me, I just cried
    I swear I told him not to fall too deep
    Neglecting to mention any type of explanation
    Especially the fact that I was mentally and physically weak
    And basically not ready or willing to love again
    I refused to start something that I could not finish
    So my intentions were simply to remain friends
    But since I failed in that attempt there is only one thing left to say
    He should know the reason why he can’t love me
    He should know that I have AIDs.

    This is so sad.
    Pain flows in every word.

    Oh my goodness, what a scenario. This piece was so sad, simple in its terrible pain and regret. I should hope no one ever has to experience this. Very thought provoking piece.
