Only A Friend
This was written after realizing I had feelings for a close guy friend of mine. Unfortunately for me he's my friend's boyfriend. She'd kill me if she found out. But I have to express myself somehow, and it became a poem. Enjoy.
I knew you weren't right for me
The moment I laid eyes on thee
To know that you were hers instead
Gave me to know I had to flee.
All thoughts a-zooming through my head
As I lie sleepless in my bed
Who knew that wrong could feel so right?
But I can't take from her, for she's my friend.
The thoughts and words, they leave a bite
'Cuz I know you're with her tonight
I know that I don't have a chance
I can't help but see you in this light.
So I will steal one last glance
Then hide this illicit romance
Perhaps you'll grant me one last dance
Oh please, just grant me one last dance…
