I love you

When we confessed our love to each other a year ago, my heart fluttered with joy. Every other thought was of you, and I couldn't help smiling every time you crossed my mind. I longed for you, and I thought you felt the same way. But you listened to people who attempted to interfere, saying we were too young and we were better off without the burden of a relationship. You listened to them and now you tell me that you want to just be friends. Just friends. It hurts so much. The thought of what we could've had causes pain. I still love you, but now, instead of happiness whenever I see you, it only brings back the bad thoughts and memories. All because of those stupid, ignorant, nosy fools. They meddled with other people's business and have caused pain for both of us. But I still love you. I will always love you.
