A few years ago I fell head over heels for a friend. I wanted to tell him how I felt but was petrified it would ruin our friendship. All these emotions would stir when we were together. Writing this poem helped save my sanity. Maybe it will save yours.

This poem originally was published in Love Poems - Love and Friendship Poems

Can You See It In My Eyes?
You don't know how I'm feeling.
I have yet to vocalize
Desire deep inside me.
Can you see it in my eyes?

I tremble when I'm near you
Heat travels up my thighs
and I want you with an urgency
That I just can't describe.

Dare I reach out to touch you?
Do you think you'd realize
How much I want and need you?
Can you see it in my eyes?

I long to say, "I love you,"
But am scared of your reply.
Terrified like a child
I've become paralyzed.

The camouflaged emotions
Lead to pain and silent cries.
And yet I just can't tell you.
Don't you see it in my eyes?

Confessing through this poem
My dilemma summarized.
The feeling's quite cathartic,
But will lead to my demise.

    I can relate to this. I like & care deeply for a good guy friend of mine & scared to death of ever losing him. I think he knows that I like him more than a "friend".

    This poem made me think about this girl in my class this year when i graduated middle school , and now were going to 2 completely different high schools , first it started out as friends but then i fell in love with her , i loved the way she did everything , when she was appcent from school i wouldn't be myself without her and right now i still can't live without her , i think about her all day everyday , and i can't tell my friends or parents because my parents won't understand and my friends will laugh at me, but this poem tells me i'm not alone.

    This is a very good poem. I love it, you know why? Cause that is what I am experiencing right this very moment. I love this guy, he is a very close friend. He has always been there for me. I was coming out of a bad marriage he made be strong and help me move on. I loved him then and I still love him now. Every word on this poem expressed how I feel about M----. Thanks
