It started as a quick extra credit assignment from my school, but for some reason, I couldn't forget about it after I handed it in. And so I edited and added more stuff on it to express my thoughts whenever I see that special one who's so close to my heart; in hopes that some of you can sympathize.
I don't know if my poem really conforms to one specific category or genre... I feel it can be a sad poem, but really, it's about the ambiguousness between love and friendship.
This poem originally was published in Love Poems - Love and Friendship Poems
I would gladly walk a mile,
if that would give me a chance
to see you smile.
I'd call you my friend,
but that's a lie.
You mean more to me,
but I can't explain why.
For you are more precious to me
than all of the world's gold,
but I can't tell you that,
how can I be that bold?
If I spoke what's on my mind,
would you accept me?
Because without you,
I don't know where I'd be.
You seem to be calm,
while I feel absolutely lost.
I would like to be so bold,
but what would its failure cost?
Am I the only one faced with this choice?
Be daring and risk losing you as a friend too?
I can't risk that; I'd rather have that then lose everything.
What should I do?
