It touched me, because of my ex boyfriends age and my age. I could go to jail for statory rape, and it scares me. This touched me more then any other poem. I Just want to be with my ex boyfriend again, but I can't because of that one reason. :'( and I can't seem to move on either.
Heather
I love this poem. It reminds me of what i am going through with my brothers best freind. I am really good freinds with him and I cannot possibly go out with him because of my brother. You have great potential to become a great and famous Auther. Thank you for making me realize that I could not possibly be with this guy because of our relationship. Thank you.

I loved this poem because I am currently in the exact situation. I am scared and worried and happy all at once. The sad thing is, I had my chance to be with him and I turned him down because of fear. I naw wish I hadn't done that but it's too late. He now goes with one of my closest friends, so me and him will never be more than simple friends.
