About the Poem
This is about a man that I am in love with, a man who was hurt very badly by another woman. He will not let me love him outside of his bed. He clings to a friend of his who does not love him for more than a friend. Maybe he's safe there, because if she never loves him she can never hurt him.

Your Best Friend
She is your best friend
She needs you there for her
You are such a good friend to her
That you disregard me for her
I'm setting you free
Leaving you alone in your bed
You need to invite her in
Taste her - see if you need her
To me, she is such a hateful thing
To you, she is your best friend
I cannot compete with the time
Or the bond that you both share
No matter how much a friend she is
You need more
You need to enter her and make her yours
Maybe then you can think of her while she's near
I'm leaving a piece of me with you
Because when she hurts you
You're going to need a new friend
And maybe then you'll let me in
