About the Poem

A few years ago I fell head over heels for a friend. I wanted to tell him how I felt but was petrified it would ruin our friendship. All these emotions would stir when we were together. Writing this poem helped save my sanity. Maybe it will save yours.

A Few Visitor Comments

You completely put my thoughts into words. Thank you.
I can relate to this. I like & care deeply for a good guy friend of mine & scared to death of ever losing him. I think he knows that I like him more than a "friend".
Hey, thank you so much for this poem. It expresses exactly how I feel about one of my friends. It's hard, you know, living like that. But reading your poem really helped me. Thank you again.

Can You See It In My Eyes?

You don't know how I'm feeling.
I have yet to vocalize
Desire deep inside me.
Can you see it in my eyes?

I tremble when I'm near you
Heat travels up my thighs
and I want you with an urgency
That I just can't describe.

Dare I reach out to touch you?
Do you think you'd realize
How much I want and need you?
Can you see it in my eyes?

I long to say, "I love you,"
But am scared of your reply.
Terrified like a child
I've become paralyzed.

The camouflaged emotions
Lead to pain and silent cries.
And yet I just can't tell you.
Don't you see it in my eyes?

Confessing through this poem
My dilemma summarized.
The feeling's quite cathartic,
But will lead to my demise.

The gangsta of love
This poem made me think about this girl in my class this year when i graduated middle school , and now were going to 2 completely different high schools , first it started out as friends but then i fell in love with her , i loved the way she did everything , when she was appcent from school i wouldn't be myself without her and right now i still can't live without her , i think about her all day everyday , and i can't tell my friends or parents because my parents won't understand and my friends will laugh at me, but this poem tells me i'm not alone.
You definately have my vote. You have put into words something I experienced some time ago. I never had the courage to utter not even a word about it.

I Know how it feels to love someone so much and not be able to tell them because your scared of what there reply will be It is so much easier to write it down then to say the words aloud

Love it!
This is exaclty what happen to me! But i had to tell her I'm a girl u guys knows wat this means. She never talk to me again I only see her. Love this poem.
i feel like this. man its so crazy how u can feel 4 someone and they dont even know or have the idea that u might just b in love wit that person. its SUPER hard to tell them because u dont know what they r going to say or how they r going to respond to what u tell them. i dont want to mess up my friendship wit this person but u dont know what to do bout it. u really cant do anything but sit back and wach what happens. only time will tell. i might get them one day but i might jus never get them who knows?
This poem is special to me, because I have a friend/co-worker that I simply adore. We are in customer service, so I wear jacket and tie on the job. I've gotten numerous compliments on my attire, but there is only one person I crave approval from. her, but it just doesn't happen. Plus, she has other friends we work with that she goes out clubbing with, so I don't really feel in the "in crowd". I just look from afar and speak cautiously about my true feelings for her and it hurts.
i to fell head over hills for a friend of mine i was so scared to tell her because i did not want to lose her as my friend.
loved it keep up the good work
thats a gd 1
i so like feel something, i lost my true love because i was afraid to lost her friendship, so i deny some love, . i wrote her lot of poems but that will never bring her back, great writing
I like this poem because something of this nature happened to me until i lost her. Thanks
this poem is just great,it reminds me of great things. Thanx for that.
Lovely wording. I loved my best friend from 13-to 18 and never told him how i felt we went our seperate ways and after i got married he called me one night to tell me he loved me. I had gotten over early years but i will never get over that call.
