About the Poem
This is a poem about a boy that I go to school with. I have had a crush on him for 3 years, and we have become really good friend. I am scared that if we move onto the next level of love we will loose our friendship - and that is a life-altering thing when you are 17 years old.

I Know I Can't Have You
Everything was simple
Everything was fine
I knew I couldn't have you
And I knew why
I tried to move on
I dated other guys
But then we'd hang out
And I knew, to myself I lied.
You noticed me drifting
You said "please explain"
But, I didn't want to loose you
So, I tried to deal with the pain.
It's hard to be with you
It gets harder each day
When I look in your eyes
I feel my body floating away
I miss the way it used to be
You don't feel the change
You don't know I really love you
I'm sure to you, it's just a game
As I close my eyes tonight
I'll pray as I was taught to do
I'll pray that you realize that
I love you, but I can't have you
