Only Friends

We were just friends before,

And my feelings for you grew more.

The love in my heart I bear,

Seems useless to you at all.

My jealous mind makes me cry,

When you looked at the handsome guy.

But it is not right for me to do,

Because I'm only a friend to you.

One day I expressed my feelings for you,

And told you that my love is real and true.

But there's nothing that I can do,

Because I'm only a friend for you.

I knew you were angry of that way,

But now it is vanished like day.

And until now, I still pray,

That your love will be mine someday.

      Yeah, I agree with you PhillyDreamer. This was my first poem written while I was in high school. I was just so inspired to wrote this poem even though the woman whom I love most always neglect me. From that experienced, I realized what love really is. Thank PhillyDreamer.

      Once in the friend zone you're stuck there, but it's not a bad place to be sometimes. Placing a person too high on a pedestal only leads to disappointment when they can't live up to your expectations.
