I related to this poem exactly the way that the writer meant for someone to react to it. I truly enjoyed this poem.

this poem reminds me of me and my fiancee'. right now things are at a rough spot and friends would probably be the best but i am trying to just take time and give it a chance. i love him but maybe friends is best i don't know. this is a great poem and it should go big.

Okay. wow! This was one of the best poems I've ever read. I'm going through something similar right now, and it helps to know I'm not alone. Thank you!

This has definitelty made me think of my best friend. We've studied together at TAFE for a year and in the short time we've become very close to the point of taking that intimate step. It started out as a casual thing, only I've let myself fall really hard for him against my efforts not too, but he's made it very clear that he doesn't feel the same for me, that I'd always be just a friend to him, almost like a sister. So how do we stop what we've started and how do I fall out of love.

I am amazed at this poem. You have truly created a masterpeice. I just told my friend how I feel for him about an hour before I read this and I want you to know that your poem has truly touched me. Thank you.

This poem really expressed the way I felt and the feelings that I still have for the person I dated a few months ago. I hope that he never forgets what we had and that the memory will last forever. I know it will for me

Hey. I read your poem, and immediatly, my heart went out to you. My best friend and I liked each other for some time. and we finally hooked up around Christmas time. Well. things got crazy, and I lost him. To myself. I no longer have that friendship, and I want, more than anything, to have that back. However, I understand that sometimes, you gotta just roll with the punches, and take what God gives you. Thanks so much for posting your beautiful work of art. I give it 2 thumbs up, along w/ a smile. :)

I met a Canadian lady on the web in February 2001. We fell in love and met secretly in my capital city and stayed together for several days. We're apart now because she learned that I'm married. This poem expresses all that I have, thus far, been unable to do in my own words.
viri
my heart pounded so hard when I read this poem! and belive me I'm crying becasue you are so right no matter what after crossing that line with a friend, especially your best friens nothing is the same. I did that and now he doesn't tlak to me anymore and we've known since 3rd grade and know we are seniors. Our realtionship lasted 4 months. So I really understand you in every way. I relate to you 100%
Casey

i've juz broke off with my bf & one thing i quite happy is that we are still friends who still show concern for each other & will still go out together.
nic
omigod this is too close to what i feel i came on here looking for a way to express myself to him and i think i found it!
Elaine
I can understand what you are writing about. Can totally relate to it..That is the question I had in my mind..but I do not have the courage to ask..for fear of a negative answer. I was the one who failed his trust in me, as a friend, by falling for him..Do I still have the right to ask for a 2nd chance?-----Great poem.
Joyce
This poem is beautifully written and fantastically expressive. I feel that it is molded to my own life. Thank you for sharing your feelings through your poetry.
Tameka

Christine
This poem was a wake up call for me. I have been in a relationship for 9 months that I knew from the start would not be good. I wasn't sure what to say to him to end things untill I read your poem. Thank you

I feel the same about a guy named Jerred.

Ever read something and felt someone had just stolen your thoughts? I was really moved by your poem... It is a situation I am going through right now and feel so sad about it. Never give up. Thanks for your talent.
Ikeeda
This Poem means a lot to me, U know how you have so much to say to the the person you are in love with, but you just don't know how to say it!... well that is how I feel. But your poem says what I am feeling. Well... I gave the poem to my ex-man who I love very much! and your poem was so deep that we both started crying )0: but it was tears of joy, we are not together but we are sill the best of friends! Thanks alot!

Your poem about love changing like seasons is so realistic among teens today. The way you expressed your feelings was very heartfelt. Keep writing!
pamela
I have teh same problem but when I turned him away we were not still FRIENDS. I wish we could be.
Sheila
Christine, your poem moved me. You summed up exactly what I too am going through. After a failed marriage, I attempted once again to trust someone and feel love. Unfortunately, the feelings were mine alone. I sent him this poem hoping that he will at least understand how I feel. Thankyou for the words!
J
I can relate to this poem so much. Last October, one of my best friends was killed in a car accident. I met one of his friends a day later and from then on we have always been the best of friends. We were there for each other when we both lost a good friend. As we got to know each other, we soon crossed that line from friendship to lovers. I soon fell in love with him, but sadly he did not return the feelings. It has been 5 months since I told him I love him. My whole world shattered that day because I thought he was a little interested, but his feelings were just friendship. I still love him today and can't seem to let him go even though he is with someone else now. We are still good friends and I am thankful that I have at least that with him along with the sweet memories we made.
Boogie
I luved your poem cause it reminded me about my life
Kirsty
Is there a time when lovers can go back to being good friends??? Sometimes I am not sure about that..each time I have tried it has ended in disaster
mandy
Excellent Poem. I have really felt how it hurts. I reccomend to anyone who is in love with their best friend, take it slow. It really does work. As hard as it may be it works. Let them know how you feel, make sure it is the right time though, the wrong time can be a mistake too.
Latoya
A really great poem. It struck such a familliar chord, as if you were reading my very thoughts. Keep up the good work!
Nachelle

Julie
Your words are exactly how I feel but could not express.
David
the whole poem itself. it reminds me of a situation with a friend i am involved with now. write a come back do you think friendship remains after sex.
Eldreia
I think this poem is so beautiful! It reminds me so much of me and my ex-boyfriends relationship. I think that I might just send this to him and some of my friends so they can send it to their ex's that they still want to be friends with!
Amanda
This poem is beautiful it gives me chills
Paige
This poem is great i really enjoyed reading it. It made me feel special in some way and i just want to let you know to keep up the great work.
anni
I have been through a relationship very much like this one and it's exactly how I felt then and still now. It's really a moving poem.
Tunisia
I could relate to this poem quite a bit. Not too long ago I broke up with my boyfriend after a year of trying to stay together. He feels that since I broke up with him it was a waste of time still wanting to be his friend after he feels as if he's still in love with me. I think that the friendship will work with his cooperation,of course. But he feels like we should just not have any contact with each other, so that it will be easier for him to deal with the overall breakup. What would you do, if you no longer had feelings for your "x" but he still has feelings for you?
Juliena
I thought that this poem was great because I hope this guy can still be my friend still because we fight all the time.
Ryan
