About the Poem

There is a line between you and me. It is very thin but when I try to cross, it turns into a wide and rough line. I shouldn't cross, I can't cross. Because I know that I am one of your friends. I want to say "I love you" a thousand times, but I can't. Because I know I am just your friend.

I chose to vote this poem because it was short and sweet. It got straight to the point but at the same time it was very powerful.

I liked this a lot- reminds me of a person and an issue I'm struggling with right now. It's short, simple, and beautiful.

Between Us

There is the melody
I can't play for you,
There is the song
I can't sing for you.

Always,
I want to be with you,
Touch, feel your heart.

Between us
There is the line
I can't cross.

Susan
Real nice. I love it.
Marty
38 words of pure wisdom and heart filled feelings.
Loren
Those 38 words contain a sentiment of truly epic proportions. I have heard of no better way to express the conflict between love and friendship that can occur between two people who can not be with each other. Although I do not know who said it, the worst way to miss someone is to be next to them knowing you can not have them. At least this poem allows a person to be able to express their innermost feelings without putting further stress on what is probably an already strained relationship. Thank you for writing it and sharing it with the world.

Thank you for writing the poem, "Between Us". It fits the circumstance I find myself in and it provided the opening to send an e-mail. Sometimes it can be very difficult to find the right words!

I think that your poem is very beautiful and quite striking. It explains so well something that I have gone through I took the chance and i thank God that he felt the same way I do. Now not only do I have my one True Love but also my best friend.
