You pour your heart out to me,
and are willing
to submerge me
in an ocean
of love

yet when I see the water
rushing towards me,
I convince myself
I don't like
to swim
(and for that, I am sorry. I don't like you the way I like him).

Beautiful. I can't say I've experienced this but your imagery gave clarity to the situation. The besotted suitor engulfed in his own obsessions to the girl who is addicted to another. A radiant poem indeed.

It can be so easy to distance oneself from a friend. There's always those creeping thoughts in the back of my mind, unpleasant ones at that.

I am the first part half of your words... I guess sometimes I can be overwhelming and don't always see what they see. 

What a subtle and interesting way of putting this complicated concept to words, thanks. :)
