About the Poem

I had this friend who I had known my entire life. He and I were pretty close and we let lust come in the way of that. Now all I am left with is my memories and of course, tears. He read this and told me it was beautiful and I haven't spoke to him since.

Are We Still Friends?

I could have held you all night long,
I could have laid next to you forever,
But then I know tomorrow soon would come,
And still we couldn't be together . . .

I went against what my head was saying,
and followed my heart through,
And instead of quitting while I was ahead,
I started falling in love with you

We had so much fun together,
the memories we made so great,
all those nights laughing and smiling,
staying up so late.

As the snow falls on the sidewalks,
I know this too will pass,
for feelings are like the seasons changing,
and one season never lasts.

So, I know this must stop now,
and tomorrow soon will come,
as we walk away and never look back,
as our warm feelings become numb.

Omg this pomen is beauftful
love it
This was very touching poem.
I really lovedthis poem, I used to be friends with this guy and then we became more and I thought it would last but I had a real rude awaking when he got sent off and he just forgot about me, I love him still and it hurts so bad when I think about what me and him used to have
I love it cause it remind me of a closed friend!
I think your poem is very beautiful in so many ways that words can not express. I was involve in a relationship a while ago and there are no better words to express my feelings than your beautiful poem. :)
this poem was great
this is a really good poem
Unbelievable in both its simplicity and yet, its complexity. Of description and feelings. I was completely moved and got goose bumps reading it having just had this experience. Could be one of my favorite poems of all times.
Very good. my friend sent me the first two stanzas as a love poem, so I decided to google it and see the rest. It was all good. It sounds like a song. Write more!
A fantastic poem and exactly what I have been feeling. I had a very close friend who once said he loved me and I wasn't ready for him for I was engaged. I realised I felt a bit more than friendship but I rejected him and also broke up with my fiance for I had all mixed up emotions. Six months later I was ready to go that step further with my friend and he said he had moved on and no longer felt the same way and just wanted to stay friends but by that stage I had fallen in love with him and now I am trying to get over him.
this is wondeful and so true its real
i luv the poem its soo realistic i wish i was as good at righting a fantastic poem luv your poem
This has described what I have felt for a person for a long period of time. Thanks for sharing this. Much Love.
i love this poem, it explains exactly how i feel, keep on writing!
This poem is the best I have so many feeling inside just like this poem. It really interacts with the real feelings of life and friends becoming lover. It just seems it never works out.
It expresses the lovliness and the sadness of falling in love with a friend. I am experiencing this very thing and am not sure of what the outcome will be, I am prepared for the outcome in this poem, but would rather that not come true. But if it does, I will read this poem to lift my spirits up and be thankful for the friendship we shared and will hopefully continue to share in the future.
this poem is so touching and valid for me right now
I think this is a wonderful poem that expresses many feeling that most can relate to. Good Work
i liked this poem because it makes me think about someone i really care about right now. n it is the truth not just a fantacy poem. good job
After what i had been through the past couple of months this poem really touched me. It kind of helps to know that love can be so strong not only for myself but others as well. Really nice poetry keep up the good work
The poem was really great so I am taking this time to vote for this very, very good poem I hope you get a lot of votes.
My girlfriend e-mailed me this after we split up. We both still really love each other, and there's going to be a lot of hurt on both sides. I think she picked this one because it's not only how we both feel, but it's also just like something I'd write myself; I've written things similarly raw and self-exposing after past relationships.
i'm so there with you it feels like i told you about my life and you just put it in a poem for me. i really liked your poem!
I loved this poem. There is a very thin line love and friends. Only cross it if you are prepare to lose a friend.
I fell inlove with my best friend about 4 years ago. These past few weeks have been so awful, my best friend of 10 years and love for 4 has changed into a person who I no longer know. He is leaving to Iraq, I will miss him but pain he has caused me and scars he has left I will not. I lost a friend and my first true love.
This is an excellent poem and really explains friends you find on the internet. I became extremely close to someone I thought was always telling me the truth, but found out not all was real. And when that happened so did our closeness. Nothing about me ever changed, but she did and now we never speak. My heart still feels the loss and I'm sure it always will.
this poem was great it come back memories of the guy i liked it touched me oh so softly
this poems it very good. i liked it a lot.
This Poem is soo very true! Keep up the good work!

I loved this poem it like something I have never read. It really touched me.
I really enjoyed reading this poem. I have a similar situation going on in my life right now, and I sent him this poem, and I really felt better when I read it. This author summed up what was going on better than I ever could. Great piece of writing!
Awesome Job, This poem truly expresses your emotions. I know exactly how you feel. You put what I was feeling into a simple beautiful way. thank you.
The best written material to read are the ones that are related to and I can relate to this.
the poem is nice. you are a good writter.
I'm going through something with a person I've been friends with just as long as I've been with my fiance'(yrs). Last year we took it to far. We're BOTH in long distance relationships and getting married soon to people who will be moving to the city where we will BOTH be living and working in the same profession. We recently decided to say goodbye to that part of our relationship, and this poem hit way too close to home.
i loved ur poem. and i must say that i don't know what to do about my lie and more,why? because i lost the love of my life i justlet him go it was almost 6months but i still and always will love him
to sum it all up. i believe this poem is really good.
This poem is so true and awesome. It is exactly about what im going through right now and really touches my heart. such an awesome poem. absolutely awesome.
i loved ur poem. it's great! you just summarized everything i felt for someone who was very special to me. unfortunately things don't always turn out to be the way you want them to. sometimes you just have to let go.
what a brilliant poem reminds me of my ex girlfriend we split up lots of times due to me feeling like a underdog because she was from a wealthy family almost one and a half years later i think about her almost every day and miss her terrible
That poem was so good! It made me want to cry. You're a terrific writer.
