About the Poem

The reason that I wrote this poem is that I had a lot of feelings and thoughts inside that I needed to let out. I have had a lot of GUY friends, but with one in particular I crossed the line. Our friendship has never been the same. Yes, we are still friends; but I find myself wondering what our friendship would be like if we had not crossed that line and gone too far. It might have been better - or would it be worse? I will never know.

When Friends Go Too Far

Why did we cross the line?
Everything would be fine -
One moment of pleasure
For all this pain;
Can you tell me now what did we gain?
Everything would be OK -
Normal as it was,
But no - we had to go to far -
We had to cross that line
I would never turn back time,
For every moment I learn.
It's just things are so different now -
Things between you and me.
Why didn't I open my eyes?
Why didn't I only see
That what we were accomplishing
Would be the end to you and me?

this poem i slike what i went thru! my best friend "R" came over when he came back from florida! we havent seen each other for a year we still talked on the phone and wrote emails back and forth but when he came back it was like 1/2 of me came back then that night we crossed the line between friends and lovers! and where did it get me no where but a broken heart i mean were still friends but it different its not like it was before nothing at all! and i reall miss him! in 1 night i lost 1/2 of me again!
kasha
omg this poem is immaculate! it menas so much! and if u experianced whta u write about it is a horrible feleing! im experionsin it right now!
Rose
I vote this because I am putting myself in this situation. Crossing that line from friends to intimate friends isn't healthy. Different feelings evolve and I'm sure you look at the other person differently. So thank you for writing this because it helped me not to go down that path because the friendship means the world to me and I don't want to lose it.
missy
i really liked your poem it was really good that is so true keep writting from your heart
Lilian
This poem touches your heart and makes you think, what would happen if you and that cutie that you call friend would ever cross that line.
Amanda
I like this poem because it reminds me of one of my old friendships and this is true once you cross that line there is no crossing it back. Now i lost a friendship i will never get back
Jenn
I relate to this poem like hands down!I went to far with a friend and i wish i could take i back SO BAD and have things go back to the way they were. But what happens, happens and you need to learn for your mistakes and just go on with life and not live in the past.

This poem took the words directly out of my head. Me nd this guy use to be friends but we took it too far. now we talk only now nd then. omg i love this poem i was really good. i guess frends jes cant go out with one another
Derek
In the end, love is a higher form of friendship. The most important piece in love's puzzle IS friendship. I'm a guy, and I recently lost my best friend/would be lover by wanting too much. God, it hurts. But I would do it again.
aaron
this is somthing everone needs to learn. is it ever realy worth it!
liz
I'm going through this same situtation. It sounds like it is a normal thing. I wish I could just get my best friend back but I don't think it will ever happen. :(
christina
This poem is so perfect, I feel the same wayabout this friend. I realize friendship lasts longer than relationships.
Kimberly

Erika

rebecca
this is a really great poem! u are def. a great writer!
Jennifer
I really like this poem I had a friend for 4 years, all through high school always had a crush on him but didn't know how he felt. After graduation we got together went WAY too far and now we are no longer friends and never will be. If anyone ever asks me if they should date one of their close friends I would say no I would much rather have a friendship than nothing!
MELISSA
I loved your poem. I just recently went through this experience and it destroyed our friendship. After reading this poem and experiencing it, I will think twice before doing it again.
Raj
this is gr8. i just want to say its really lovable ! thank you for this nice poet.
chickie
this poem is so true! i went trough this with a special friend of mine. we passed the line. look at us now were still friends but not like we use to when we desided to take out realtionship farther away. you see now my dear friend went away we dont talk like we use to. and we dont have eachothers trust. i wish one day i can gain his trust. Friends are like money they come and go but at the end the ones that u ended upw it may be the ones who are worth even more. thank you, Chickie
