I wanted to vomit when he let go of me!

Hug between friends
Hug between friends

I'm Just Saying

Just Friends.

Unwelcome words when you want more.

Just friends.

On one side of the couch I sit and you on the opposite end.

Just friends.

Calls and invites, 90 percent, one sided made.

Just friends.

Calls and invites accepted, cause its something to do so he wont be alone.

Just friends.

Not his type: Too Fat, Too Dark, Hair Too Nappy. Anyone else will do.

Just friends

But dang if that girl cant cook, I'll eat her food.

Just friends.

A good bye hug - a body stiffens and arches though arms embrace.

Just friends.

I swallow bile as I turn to stop the tear.

You're gonna make me cry!! Oh honey, these words are so raw but the truth of how it feels. You search for any answers because the ones given don't make sense. Love it!
