This often happens when guys and gals get together and theres alcohol involved. I bet if you did want to do it again, youd at least minus the alcohol so you could really have a memorable experience.

i liked this poem because it reminded me of a boy i used to love and i wish he would say some of those words to me but i know that is not ever going to happen because he treated me so bad
Sarah
Your Poem touched me. It hit the spot of were I am right now. I just got into an arguement with a friend 2 days ago. we didn't walk home together. we didn't even look at eachother. I tried calling her to make things right but she either hung up on me or she would not answer. then yesterday she didn't go to school I was bummed out that she still felt mad I thought that maybe since we sat next to each other in our 3rd period we could talk things through but we obviously can't if she's not there. then today i heard from other people who didn't know what had happend who have her for first period that she was talking badly about me and calling me names. I was dissappointed and it really mad me sad I don't want my friends talking crap behind my back you know but then again I can forgive and forget because I care way too much. Our friends tried to make us talk at lunch since we were sitting like right next to each other and yet we didn't look at eachother and she didn't make any effort to try and talk to me as I did for her. Our friends were yelling at us telling us that it doesn't affect them just us and that we were too close to let it all go down in flames. My fingers are still crossed and will stay that way until we make up.
Denise
This really touched me. My best friend and I have done things that we should not of done, but nither one of us know how to stop. We are really enjoying the attention we give one another that way. But we are both married! Think you are worse off?
Rayann
*Friends do come and go, but if you been thier friend forever, always be. Cause if your sad or down who's gonna cheer you up!
Den
Just the sort of poem I was looking for, I said a few harsh comments to my friend today, and the hurt he felt hit me quite unexpected, I am devistated knowing he may never speak to me again and give away my gifts. I think this poem sums up how I feel, I just hope he doesnt delete it before reading it, I live in hope he will not disolve our friendship, as he is my best friend.
Tia
i love this poem because it makes me think of how much my friendships mean to me and how much i want to keep them friendships so i wont have to lose them like the person did in this poem
Mugabi
A question to the people who have been touched by this poem: Is it really a bad thing to fall in love with your friend? Can there be love without friendship? Can there be friendship without love? If so what is Love?
Eddie

I was once in the same spot w/ a good friend. We became distant. We're still best friends but we'll never forget the incident. I loved the poem it brought out not only you'r feelings but mine too. Your a great writer and i hope you will write more poems like this one!
Paige

Hello. I liked your poem. Ims orry that he hasnt spoken to you since that happened. But maybe yo shouldnt think of it as a "mistake". it is testing how strong ur friendship is. And in the end im sure he will come back ready to forgive and forget. Good luck with him.

mia
The poem was great, i had a friend that i lost due to a careless mistake, i love him more than anything in the world.

This poem is great. I hope you expressed that this is the way you feel to the person it was about.
kenny
hey i really liked this poem cause it is expressing what she feels about her friend she lost, and if she reads this i hoipe her and her friend become close again. cause friends are everything to me and i could not live with out my boys or my girls, so everybody should know what she is feeling, so i give her alot of props cause that was a good poem

Wow. you make me feel like you can read my feeling!I've been in the same situation. And it took me almost a year before he's willing to talk to me again. But still things can never be as beautiful as it was before:-( Anyway, good job!
Daina
i love this poem ive been through what its talking bout.
Jessie
I love the poem you wrote. It's weird cause I also can relate to this poem. My best firend and I ended up taking things to another level and it was going on for almost 1 year then we ended up falling in love with eachother. Then one day he told me that he needed some time away to get over me because neither him nor I could be together. We both belonged to someone else. It was kind of like a forbidden love. I still love him and he still loves me but our friendship and everything we had will never ever be the same.
salma
