This is by far one of the most inspiring poems i have ever read. And it fits me because I'm going through exactly the same thing with a girl I know I love
denise

Erica
Matt, All I can say is that your words are beautiful. You are a kind and caring soul with so much passion. Don't give up on your freind, trust me she feels the same way and just doesn't know it yet.

I thought this was a really good poem! This poem was good because it was kinda like me but to a guy friend he is a really sweet guy but we will always stay friends!
Kari
I feel the same way about my closest guy friend. I told him in a letter that I wrote to him. He wrote back and told me he felt the same way. Now we're getting married. For you people that don't have very good luck with that. just stay hopeful and some day they will feel the same way too. Good luck to you all out there.

I really like this poem. My best friend used to be going out w/ My best friend. They fought a lot and I was always there for him whenever she wasn't. I think I like him for more than an friend.
Brian
I was in this position not so long ago. and she'd just started going out with a fella but wasn't sure if it'd last. I took the plunge so that even if she just wanted to be friends,she'd have known all the facts. Luckily she liked me too and dumped the other fella. L luv her to bits as a friend and in time,if things given a chance,id luv her as a lover too. I know the feelings in this poem all too well. top notch stuff!
Shay
I live this poem so much cuz it goes hard like that gurl you keep up with that good poetry and kinds of remind me like my so -called- boyfriend
UrAsh
I hope there's still a chance for you and your friend. Why not let her know exactly how you feel. It may be mutual, but she just doesn't know how to express herself.
Ally
i like the poem. i have a friend (that's what i thought) in the office, but as time passes by. i started to fall for him. But we can't be lovers co'z I'm already married. just married. But I'm happy with my life now, I just can't believe that I can still fall in love with other guy. which is my friend.
Alley
That poem was really insprational it has inspired so many people who wish that they could be more than just friends with one of their friends. keep up the good poems i look foward to seeing more of them!
Tasha
This poem got to me. I was looking on the internet for a poem to tell this boy how I really feel about him, and I think this is the one. Thanks alot:)
angel
i feel u friend. i told my close how i felt about her but she didn't feel the same way. i was devasted but i had to have her in my life, so i worked at being her close friend again. we are close again but i still feel a lot for her. i don't know if i should let her know or just keep it inside forever. ?
Robin
This poem hits sooooo close to home, this is a great poem. I have been wanting to ask my best friend for years now, but there is another problem. They're twins. I can't ask one without upsetting the other.
Dan
I felt just like that with one of my closest friends, I got the impression she liked me, we did everything together! I made the mistake of asking her out, things have never been the same since, we hardly do anything anymore, we hardly even talk. People out there, please, no matter how badly you like the person, don't tell them how you feel until you're 100% sure that they like you back.
Jessi
I really liked this poem!i feel the same exact way about my guy friend!I already know he does'nt feel the same way about me, but then i read wut some 1 wrote in they're opinion & it kinda gave me a little hope!thanx 4 everything!:)
thomas
yo dawg, i liked this poem b/c i know what you mean, so i can relate to what your saying.
JESSI
HEY EVERY1, LIKE MOST OF THE PPL THAT HAD COMMENTS, I LIKE MY BESTFRIEND.BUT I MADE THE MISTAKE OF TELLING HIM HOW I FEEL, AND HE DIDN'T HAVE THE SAME FEELINGS AS ME.SO IF U DECIDE YOU WANT TO TELL HIM/HER, THINK LONG AND HARD ABOUT IT FIRST
valerie
u know what? i have a special feeling for my friend long time time ago and i never had a courage to tell him every time we talk together i want to tell him but i dont want to lost him..forever
JENNIFER
YOUR POEM WAS GREAT I FELT THE SAME WAY ABOUT MY BESTFRIEND AND NOW WE ARE TOGETHER SO I HOPE EVERYTHING WORKS OUT FOR YOU.
Katie
This is how I feel about my good friend.. I've tried showing him the way I feel.. I think he may like me more than a friend aswell. atleast.. I hope he does.. But I like this poem a lot.. I sent it to him :) hope he understands.
Angel
OMIGOD. This is a really kewl poem. It reminds me of my friend and me. You see, he used to be my best friend. But, when I started to develop deeper feelings for him, we sort of drifted appart. We are still friends, but not as close as before. I really miss having the closeness. He sorta already knew I might have had deeper feelings for him. But I should have told him about it sooner. Then maybe we would have started something.
abc
great poem. like everyone else said- i'm going through this very thing. do you risk sacrificing the friendship for more or keep the security blanket?
vanessa
this poem was really great!i understand where your coming from.
Rachael
OMG! when i first read this poem i cried and cried and i kept rereading it..it explains how i have felt for my best friend for so long.i go out w/ other guys and always try to get over him.but it never works we flirt all the time and no one knows us as just rach and just him (not giving name) its always rach and him b/c we are always together..i think i might finally get up the courage to tell him how i feel and this poem will help! hank you so much matt! keep writing! you are great!
Wendy
I have the same situation like this pome. I really love my best friend. I used to have a relation with him, but now, he even don't call or say a word to me. I really miss him and i will always love him, even though he won't love me.
tamara
well I think this poem is good really good
chris
I do like the poem,similar to many life stories of many people. I also had this situation. I told her how I felt and found that she did have feeling for me,but they had faded with time. Try to talk to her,never let anything pass you by.you may regret it for the rest of your life
Brittany
I think this is a really good poem. It makes me think about when i fell in love with my bestfriend.
archer
this poem is really good,it made me think even more of this one special lady, who I like very much. And would like to be more than just good friends with her. And when a poem can get me to think of her even more, you wrote a fine poem.
inluvgirl
i am going through the same thing with my best friend . i love him so much and he means so much to me , as i'm writing this i have very strong feelings for him and he doesn't know so i can really relate to the poet!
ashe69
i loved your poem. so many men never show emotions, that we all no they have!!!!!!!!
Michelle
This poem speaks out in the fear in their heart of losing the friend that they love while they cannot stop themselves from saying "I love you."
Nick
i love the poem you wrote. If it is possible can you tell me other poems. Poems such as this so i can tell to a friend of mine who i really like for a while to be interested in me. Above all your poem is great.
ashley
I feel that this is a great poem that you could give to a friend or have givin to you to get a relationship going.
mark
it fits my situatin very well and i have been looking so hard for this poem exactly and i mean (EXACTLY) thank you
moff
i fell in love with my best friend a year ago. we all know that every situation is different, but the emotions we had to face were similar. fortunately she felt the same. we are now married and the half of me that was missing is there at last. very inspirational. peace, love and harmony to you and yours.
crystal

Very true. The same thing is happening to me.
Tommy
I have been searching for poems that best reflect my feelings for two very special ladies in my life. One is in the past but but I wish it wasn't, the other is in the now and I'm falling for her in a big way. I have found a poem for each of them, and this is for the former. Its just how I feel, and its got to be done because I didn't tell her at the time.
Alda
This poem had such an effect on me that i actually started to get tears in my eyes. I hope Mr. Whitaker has some up his sleave later.
Marcelo
Sensibility in a few words. It happenned to me so I know how it feels.
Tunisia
I could really relate to this poem. My current boyfriend once was nothing more than a mutual friend and now we are not only friends but we are also lovers. keep up the good work and I will be looking forward to to reading more of your poetry.
Rue
I really really liked this poem it was very cute and very sweet
christine
THIS POEM REMINDS ME ABOUT HOW I FEEL ABOUT MY B/FRIEND & ALSO ABOUT A FRIEND OF MINE & HIS G/FRIEND. IT STRUCK A RAW NERVE WITH ME,I GUESS IT'S BETTER 2 HAVE THEM AS A FRIEND THAT NOT 2 HAVE THEM AT ALL! THANK U 4 SHARING IT WITH ME!
anand
I have a similar situation. And I feel exactly the same way and have decided to remain friends with her, rather than risk losing her friendship. She means more than anything to me. She's my world. But fate had destined something else. Are you listening GOD ???
mari
EXCELLENT!
Edea
i love it! ^_^
