It hurts!But not everything that we want could come true. There is time that we hav to surrender. Long live LOVE!
Ulric
WOW! This emotional outlet is awesome. even deep. If it was written to a woman maybe some would say the guy is to feminine. but I would say that guy or gal. a friend is a friend. and loving them is loving them. You are Deep

This is very good. Its like me and a girl i like more than a frined. She is my best frined and I look in her eyes and can tell that i need to spend my life with her. We can tell each other any thing. But she says she does not want to lose her best frined if we broke up. I told her you can never lose your best frined if you love each other. I pry every day to my dream comes true. And i can spend my life with her. We had are bad times together are ready. Are good frined died and we were there together. And than she had a baby over year go and i was with her too she had the baby. I drove to see her every week becouse i work 81 miles away and lived there oo. And im still there. And look at a photo every night to fall a sleep too. Now every moring she wakes me up with a niice phone call to start my day off. If she does not call i have a very bad day. i love this girl and will die if any thing happens too her.

this poem is great. I'm a guy, but all too often have i fallen in love with a friend, thinking that they are the ones i was looking for. For me, it turns out that my newest best freind(now my girlfriend) is the one i've been looking for. She's promised to marry her, and i've promised the same to her. If this poem is about something that is or has happened to you, then i hope it all works out for you. From one writer to another, good work and good luck:)

I love this poem. I'm going through this with someone I've known for the past 5 some years. We havn't been close the whole 5 years, but have grown to be friends. I fell for him the second I saw him. We've both dated other people, but I've found he's the only one I realy want. But I have no question in my mind that he doesn't share the feelings. Good luck to all those out there going through the same problem. Don't let love pass you by. Thank you!

Thank You! You wrote a poem that describes the relationship between me and my other. It was like our relationship that had been put into words.
Izzy
First I have to say I loved the poem. it hits me right in my heart and soul, being a person that fell in love with my best friend. she and i have grown apart since i confessed my love for her. and deep inside i feel that she loves me as well, but is afraid to lose the friendship that we built after 5 years. it hurts to think because of how i felt about her, that i'll never talk to her again. but as i have had for the last few years, i will keep the hope alive. id rather her my friend than nothing at all. but i loved the poem; worded perfectly, atleast in relation to my life. great job.
Lynn
I love this part of the poem. I have the feeling of love in my heart. In my mind, I say "You don't mean a thing. " In my words, I say "You are just a friend. " But in the deep end of my heart, I think of only you that is great! that is what i am feeling for one of my friends right now. i like this poem alot. especially that part!
kohl
