Just a Friendly Relationship


Just Friends

A woman with a remote look

Home in a zone of her own.

Her body pregnant with words;

Speaks to me in tongues.

I've learned to float by instinct.

We balance our shadows;

Visit each other in dreams.

I've reasoned it out beyond my reach,

What's happened

As we race to reason.

Something has become more than it is

And there isn't any way

To put what we feel into words

When you want to say something

That is good and beautiful

Even though you may not

Understand exactly what.

In the vastness of what's left to discover and know,

We are left

Looking for meaning

That is hidden there.

Talking about strong and complicated feelings

Can change you and add to

What you know and are.

Inclinations move

From one thing to another

In unexpected ways

The way dreams do

Free of worries and constraints.

Friends don't have to be anything else;

Just friends.

Yes avionnovice there is a question there. The story is set up around a couple that have strong feelings for each other but they each belong to someone else.

This was said perfectly, but it also seems that there really is the question, "What if?" in there?

You explain this well. Clear, lucid, no expectations ...a sometimes difficult one. Much Love.

Very meaningful and creative poem. There is truly a lot of meaning in these words. As confusing as these relationships can be in our heart, they have the advantage of lasting - for what it is.
