On Halloween I met someone who changed my life. We started dating about two weeks after we met and things went well for almost two months. Then I was convinced by another friend (a guy friend) to break it off with him.

I did and that same day we talked for almost 7 hours about everything and how stupid I was. Today, we are such good friends that I treasure that more than a petty 8th grader "puppy love."

I know it will always be possible for me to have feelings stronger than friendship for him and maybe some day those will come back. But for now I am happy with him as my best friend.

This poem originally was published in Friendship Poems - Teen Poems

The Wrong Way
The wrong way, no one ever does this,
We're the best of friends but at one time longed to kiss,

We have done things in opposite array,
But for us maybe God intended it this way.

I ended it all with following words from a friend,
From a pretend friend, who wanted my world to end.

You were my world, each breathe I took, everything I dreamed,
A friendship shouldn't come from this, but amazingly through the dark it beamed.

Maybe my mistake was some sign,
That you were meant to just be a great friend of mine.

I am feeling happy that we are still so close,
Even though we don't shared what I wanted most.

For now I understand what I have gained from all this,
A special friend, someone who for not one moment do I want to miss.

    I like this poem because I am also in this situation I have liked this guy named Alex for a long time and when i finally went out with him for only two days I listened to one of my friends. I really regret listening to her cause I know want him back and he thinks it would be best if we be friends for now because he likes my best friend and he wants the old me back. Thank you for this poem it really matches me and him. I love it.
