It's hard being best friends with a guy when you are a girl. It is so much harder when you both start caring in a more-than-friends way. The most painful thing that could ever happen is when you realize you're both better off without each other.

This poem originally was published in Friendship Poems - Poems about Lost Friends

I Can See The Pain
I still see your face in my dreams
It hurts and it doesn't help at all
I still want you in my life as crazy as that seems
I want you to catch me when I fall

I still remember the first time we met
There was something so different about you
Your friendship was something I wanted to get
That smile when you said hi to me was so new

Out of no where you called me on the phone
I wanted to sit there and talk to you forever
You were so new, so crazy and unknown
I just knew that our friendship would never sever

Two years and we are barely holding it together
What happened to the way this all used to be
I never wanted you out of my like ever
I sat there for a long time pretending not to see

We decided to go out and make it all all right
It didn't work out of course we knew it couldn't
We couldn't even really stand each others sight
It shouldn't end this way but it did and I shouldn't

I miss you and everything you were to me
Ten years from now we will look back on it all
We will be older and finally be able to see
That love will stand the test of time and never fall

    I had a friends for 7 years and her and i ended it just like the poems stated. This poem really touched me. I can see us in a few years looking back and seeing that it was something that we could of fixed but never thought that it would end so we never took the time to fix it.

    All I have to say is Wow. This is the exact poem I was hoping to find, something to describe what I'm going through right now. I just want you to know this poem is very accurate, it makes me happy to know that I'm not the only one feeling this way. Thank you for that.

  • ramya
    This poem is so touching, im today leaving my friend who works with me in the same company and i could not say him that i'm changing my company. could not say him that leaving him and going away from him. i'm not able to express my feeling to him. i can feel the pain stated in this poem. :-( i did not feel this pain before thinking of changing the company, but now??? i dont have words to say how much i like him.

    This poem did touch my heart because it happened to me. Now either me or him never contact each other again. I really did not know was it my fault or his fault. All i knew was our friendship ended the way i never expected will occur.
